hi ! i currently has an nvidia GeForce 8500 GT graphics card. Unfortunately it struggles with games like f1 2012 . and wrc3. I'm looking to upgrade to something that will definatly be good f
or gaming. my computer is an HP with an AMD Phenom 9500 Quad-Core Processor 2.2 ghz with 6.0 gb of ram and runs a 64 bit windows 7 . is it possible just to up grade the graphics card. if so what to.

If you have the budget I would upgrade the whole system, putting any modern card in that machine would lag due to the hardware like the processor.

Probably won't help much, that is one OLLLDDDD system. You can't even overclock because that's prevented due to HP.

I doubt there's any hope of overclocking the CPU since he said It's an HP

GPU tool = The simplest overclocking utility i have ever used. all you have to do is click on the clock speed u want. it can even do a stablity test for you. but if you really want to upgrade id suggest getting a new cpu for now and keeping the 8500GT overclocked until you can buy a better GPU. ask these dudes on which CPU to get but if i were you i would just change my GPU to a hd6670 or gt440
