Hello, my friend Andrew wants to play a game, called Combat Arms, fluently at 1024 x 768 resolution or 1366 x 768.

Right now he owns the HP Pavilion A6710t Desktop with a Pentium E2220 2.4 GHz Dual-Core processor and an integrated 7100GT nVidia graphics adapter. The power supply is 250W.

Can he buy an upgrade, such as a nVidia 9800 GT graphics card, or should he just buy a new computer all together?

Thanks.

New probably best, what his budget?

But if he want to get the 9800GT, need a new psu.

What watt PSU would you recommend? Would one of 400-500 do it?

Well, the quality of the PSU comes in here. If all he really wants to play is Combat Arms, that computer should work fine.

Does he have a budget? You can get a 9800GT for pretty cheap nowadays.

His budget is around $100-150 dollars. Right now, he can't play Combat Arms too well with his computer.

I would just get a Radeon HD7750. Would be the perfect card for that computer. Though, the power supply is kinda pushing it.

What model of Radeon HD7750 do you suggest? XFX and Sapphire look good, but I'm not too educated on the companies that produce AMD cards.

Would a 400W or a 520W PSU cut it?

I found an Antec 520W on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

400W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

XFX 7750: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Sapphire 7750: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 400W should be more than enough for the 7750. Go for the Sapphire.
