Hi, I'm going to be purchasing this computer during boxing day sales: http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/hewlett-packard-hp-...

I have a number of questions:

1) I'm not sure if I should replace the graphics card, I don't know if it's good enough for the games I want to play. (Cod4, Minecraft, League of Legends, and possibly some other FPS games).

2) If I need to replace the card, what do you recommend? I want to be able to play on high settings with a smooth frame rate.

3) Will I need to purchase a power supply for this card? Which?

4) Overall, do you guys think this computer would be good enough for these games after I upgrade the GPU?

Please just let me know if the card will need to be upgraded or not. I'm not looking to run 200 FPS or anything, just around 80.

Forgot to add!

Do I need to ground myself when replacing the GPU? And if so, how should I go about doing so?
