Hi All,

I am a newbie at installing a new graphics card and could do with some advice , I have a Dell Inspiron 530 Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6002) Service Pack 2
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz Memory: 3070MB RAM

With a ATI Radeon HD 3450 graphics card, I have been doing some research and for my upgrade budget (£150) I was looking at getting the Nvidia GTX650 graphics card.

So a couple of questions:

1) I like my games so will this keep me up to date for the next 4 years?

2) Will I able to install easily into my PC (Never done this so all advice welcome!)?

Thanks

Lee ;)

Thanks for that sounds like it will be fine for me for now as will probably get a whole new system by two/three years time :-)

I have seen mention of other people being concerned about PSU being a problem im not sure what wattage my computer is does that matter?

Cheers
