I am looking to upgrade my graphics card for the first time. I've never dealt with changing a graphics card, so I thought I'd come for some help!
My budget is about $75.00, so I'm not looking for top of the line hardware. I'd be interested in playing games such as Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Starcraft II, and Arma 2, on at least medium settings on a mid range screen resolution.
After looking around this site a bit, I've come across the Radeon 6670 that I am interested in.
I found this one on Newegg:
GIGABYTE GV-R667D3-1GI Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
1) Is this graphics card able to be installed on my computer?
2) Is it capable of playing the mentioned games when considering the card+my current hardware?
3) Is there any other graphics card you'd recommend in this price range?
Thank you for any assistance!
