    Got an as rock p4i45pe motherboard, 2gb ram, and this might sound stupid, but what's psu?
    Thanks
  3. PSU = Power Supply Unit

    I have looked at your motherboard and found that it doesn't have a PCI-Express slot, this means you're really not going to be able to install any decent graphics card from the last 6-8 years.
  4. You will have to upgrade your motherboard to a latest version which means that you will probably have to change your cpu too. i suggest you get an i3 2100 and a compatible lga 1155 socket motherboard with it and please make sure it has a pci xpress slot. then put a Radeon HD 7850 graphics card in that slot. you will also have to upgrade your ram to ddr 3 :p or if you dont want to go through the trouble of changing ram or cpu just get the same socket motherboard with a pci express slot and put a hd 7850 into it. make sure you have a power supply of 500 watts (GENUINE) to power up that card. The power supply will not cost that much compared to the graphics card
  5. Time for a new build if you want to game at all...

    even a i3 and a 7850 would be a massive and budget conscious upgrade.
