I have an HP Intel 2 quad CPU Q6600 @2.4 GHZ 2.4 GHZ with 4 GB Ram 64 Bit Operating sys and a 8500GT Graphics card. newer games (Ghost Recon Future Soldier) do not work properly. Do I need to upgrade my graphics and if so what should I get???
The 8500 GT is a really slow card. It has 16 cores compared to an 8800 GT, which has 112 (7x the number) and is considered the base line for most games that are console ports. That game would most likely be unplayable if you actually got it to work, so an upgrade is in order. How much would you be willing to spend on a new card, and a new power supply, because the ones big PC manufacturers include are not going to be able to handle a decent video card.
