MichaelSP December 18, 2012 8:41:53 AM If you want to play many of the newer games on higher settings, that graphics card really won't be strong enough. You'll need to look at a card of $150-$250 to get into some of the more powerful cards for modern games on reasonable to high settings. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
