Hello. I have a pretty old PC but sometimes i want to play some games and they don't really work the way they should. I think it's because of the graphics card.

I currently have an Asus 9500gt 512mb with the following specs:
Intel pentium D 945 @ 3.4ghz
4gb dualchannel ddr2
500gb hdd

I know it's pretty old and i have a pretty good high-end laptop, but i don't want to play games on it so i was wondering if you can help me upgrade my pc.

Thanks a lot, any help would be appreciated

Get 1 of these : http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...
It's a pretty decent gpu for the money and problably if you went higher end then the cpu or the ram would bottleneck it, so that is a pretty good choice, you might get some more frame rates by getting 4gb ddr3 memory, its so cheap these days!:)

It's fine - PCIe (which I presume is what you meant to type) is completely backwards-compatible. In fact, a card like that wouldn't even have any speed difference between the two.

Oh, sorry, yes. Pci-e. "E" is very close to 3 on the keyboard ^^.
Tho i don't think i'll but that one, it's a little too expensive for me atm. I think i'll search one in the 50e-100e range (e = euros).

Thanks
