    What is your power supply wattage and model?
    460 watts Original Power Supply that hp installed
  4. if you have no limit i would say buy a new psu and get a nvidia gtx 680 you will definitely need a new psu atleast personally my 570hd doubleshot takes like 250 watts
  5. try to find ahd 7970 or gtx 680 take good 600- 700w psu and enjoy!
  6. What setting do you want to play on? Do you want to use full anti aliasing? What is your monitor resolution?
  7. I would say you need a new graphics card as well. You could get something like this if you have no budget but are staying within reason:

    Is a good 650 watt all you need to sli 2 680s? Nvidia's site sucks and doesn't specify the minimum psu spec for sli. Well at least I don't think it does; can't find it anywhere.
