hey i have a computer with the following specs;
AMD bulldozer quadcore 4.2GHZ CPU
AMD radeon 6450 GPU
8 GB DDR3 RAM
500W PSU

and im having problems playing games, even relatively old ones like fallout 3, on high settings and its annoying. so i was thinking should i just get an entirely new GPU or maybe get another 6450 and run them in crossfire?
thanks

You need a better graphics card. Crossfiring a 6450 won't buy you much performance since its not really meant to game. 6670 is the very low end of gaming cards but I suggest you go several notches up from there.

What is your budget?
What is your PSU?

Do not crossfire 6450!

I had a 6450! Its was $30 and should not be crossfire'd. There are many great GPU's that will DESTORY the 6450. I Just wait for a good deal and spend at least 100 bucks.

There have been some super cheap 6870s going down. 130-140ish with shipping. Just wait for a deal.
