okay so ive had this computer for a while and it a HP Pavilion p6345a... yes i know its a piece of crap haha here are the specs for it:

MS-7613 (Iona-GL8E)

Intel Core i5 650 @ 3.20 GHz (up to 3.4 GHz turbo)

Memory: 8gb

Video graphics
ATI Radeon HD5450 (***!!!!)

PSU: 300W power supply

i need to know how far i can upgrade this computer by replacing the PSU, Graphics card and processor and case (if last two are needed needed)

as for a game i want to run: battlefield 3 at medium to max settings :) 

thank you for anyone who replies to this :)

Yes, you are right but I think you really need to upgrade your PSU first then GPU

Get an Antec Neo Eco 520w
then get a
7850. DONE!

The last two aren't really as critical as the GPU. Gaming needs a better GPU. Your CPU is fine for now. Your GPU is crap.

id really just upgrade everything. but first the psu and GPU

for the power supply, id get a xfx 550w for 53.99 after MIR at us.ncix. much better than the antec basiq

then id get something like a 7870.

+1 to Cutebeans.

Your processor won't bottleneck the radeon 7850.
Just make sure it fits in your casing :)

yeah i was just thinking just the PSU and the GPU at the moment and i think 7870 and 7850 are good choices im just wondering if it works with my motherboard :)
