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.

Ashkaari December 24, 2012 4:10:28 PM I'm so sorry, i'm never sure what is useful to know and what isn't. 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) Related resources Help on upgrading my HP Prebuilt Desktop - Forum Upgrading GPU Help; MSI's 780 Lightning or 970??? - Forum Need help with upgrading gaming PC - Forum Please help me upgrading my rig - Forum would upgrading to water cooling help my rig? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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.
