Hi guys i'm just a amateur on IT and just want to help from you all wondering if my current specification on my com needs what kind of modification for games like diablo 3 or GW2.

concurrently this are the specs i have

Proccesser: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor ADO4000DDBOX

PSU: acbel atx12v power 510 450W

Ram: 2GB

Graphics: MSI NX8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16

Fan: addition 2 fans

MB: MSI K9AGM3 motherboard, socket AM2 for AMD CPU and AMD 690G chipset.

Was considering of upgrading the graphics was wondering if sapphire HD 67701GB GDDR5 or MSI 6770 HD 1GN GDDR5 is possible as the mini requirement for both Graphic card was minimum 450WATT and people always mention bottleneck will it happen in this case? Please do advise me what to do or upgrade thank you guys~ :wahoo:

HD6770 is a big card for your CPU so if you could upgrade that as well it would be better.

Well all depends on budget and if motherboard replacement is in the picture as well. You having AM2 motherboard which some actually support AM3 CPU's that is a possibility but a faster X2 (cheap of ebay) would also be an option. What motherboard do you have?

Cheapest, overclock your current X2, second cheapest get a supported but faster X2 of ebay. Just changing the CPU is not going to call for PSU upgrade.
