    The 7770 is a nice recommendation. Pretty damn cheap nowadays and surprisingly capable.

    Certainly wouldn't want anything more powerful, no. Not until some upgrades are done.
  4. i read a good review the other day about adding a new grapics card with older system.

  5. Go step by step

    => Replace your mobo with a nice G41 or G45 chipset mobo from Gigabyte or Asus

    => Buy a pair of DDR3 Ram sticks (4x2 is enough)

    => Buy a decent CPU cooler (cooler master txt 3 )

    => Overclock your CPU to at least 3.6 Ghz ( ALL PRESENT HIGH GRAPHICS GAMES REQUIRE A PROCESSOR AT LEAST 3GHZ)

    => then buy a Radeon HD 7770 Ghz edition from SAPPHIRE

    Your upgrade budget will be as good as Rs 12000/-

    Now your PC is ready to take on any game at midium and high setting
  6. HD 7770 or GTX 650 Ti
