So what are your thoughts here, pretty legit weak or what? I'm pretty satisfied but my video card is Suspect I went cheap only spending 54 bucks.....so What would you offer as a MARKED Upgrade I don't want to game on LOW-MED settings. I want ULTRA settings for within a reasonable price range. Not too good with cards as you can see above? I just saw the 1gb dedicated and got jipped.....

  1. hello mumford and hey guys and girls out there :)

    the nvidia youve chosen is very weak, you wont play any not even in medium with it, 1GB DDR3 is not the big thing, i would like to know your budget and if you let me i can help you building a pc.
    i saw the processor u chose, its cool but we can change it to intel if you want to, take a look man then you tell me.

    HDD its good enough with 320GB, i always recommend gold certified PSU for these kinds of video cards.

    i hope i can help you, this is a nice rig price/performance, have a nice day man.
  2. Just looking for a video card, as I have just completed this build. Anything powerful in the 200 or under cat?
  3. What "550W" PSU do you have? Going to make a big difference. Also, what resolution is your monitor.

    1GB or even 2GB 7850 will be a great upgrade. Should be able to handle just about everything at 1080 with a few exceptions. Should be in the $160-$180 range. You can also consider the GTX660. Need to double check that PSU however.
