Upgrading help Tags: Graphics Cards CPUs Graphics Last response: December 24, 2012 4:14 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Ashkaari December 24, 2012 3:50:16 PM Hello guys! For a few months i've been following this website and the forums. I'm very curious about computers and their hardware. Anyhow getting to the point, i would like to know if i can upgrade my computer's graphic card. I understand a little about the cpu and ram but when it comes to graphic cards i really know nothing. To give some insight into my system, here is what i gathered by using CPU-Z: CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 3.06 ghz Motherboard: Acer EG43M; Graphic Interface PCI-Express (link width x16 max supported x16) Memory: DDR3 4gb Dual Channel Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce 315 512 Mb. I know that most of the new games will require a stronger cpu, but my main goal right now is to be able to play games like skyrim at high at 30 fps. I would rather not spend more than 120€, but if there's no other choice I'll have to go with it. Thank you very much for the time and for the support.

My current screen resolution is 1280 x 1024, though my grandfather offered me today a new screen with 1920 x 1080 of resolution (so ill be using this one from now on) | Report abuse Reply to Ashkaari DarkSable Graphics card Master CPUs Authority December 24, 2012 4:12:07 PM Yep. We actually don't need your monitor's size, just the resolution you aim to be playing the game at. Also, just checking, this isn't a laptop, right? EDIT: Ninja'ed. For 1080p (your grandfather's screen), and your budget, I'd hunt around sales looking for a 7770. Newegg has a 7770 GHz edition on sale for $120, but they don't ship outside the US, I don't believe. | Report abuse Reply to DarkSable Ashkaari December 24, 2012 4:14:05 PM no, this is a desktop | Report abuse Reply to Ashkaari Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Upgrading help> Related ressources: ForumUpgrading PC after 4 Years(2009) Need Help !
