Hey all I recently purchased a game for my son ( battlefield 3 ) and it won't run on my computer. I'm assuming I need to upgrade the graphics card on this computer considering I just bought it at the store and it has an integrated graphics card. My question is what card should I go with and what would work best with our current set up?

Windows 7 32 bit SP 1
AMD Athlon IIx4 630 Processor
4.0GB Ram

If there is any other information required let me know. I'm not to computer savvy so bear with me!

It sounds like you might need a bit more than just a video card I am afraid.

Give all the specs you can.
Power Supply (details)
Monitor resolution

BF3 is a rather demanding game.

Maybe a link to your specs?

BF3 may be a demanding game in the sense that it CAN be demanding if you turn eye-candy up.

Minimum specs per EA itself:
CPU: 2 GHz Dual Core (Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon X2 2.7 GHz)
GPU: DirectX 10.0 compatible with 512 MB RAM

These really aren't that hard to meet, but like embra said, we now need to know what graphics card is in it and power supply type and especially power output rating. This computer already gets the check for CPU, RAM, and of course the OS.
