Hello I'm looking into a new computer. I want a graphics card that will play high-performance games (Fallout 3, CoD: MW2/CoD: MW2, etc.) at low-medium settings, but with playable/decent FPS and graphics (I don't want a high-end graphics card). Can you direct me to a good website with this kind of information? Or even a series of cards to research. Or just simply explain in a reply.

**Other specifications include:

Windows XP (preferably XP, but probably Vista or 7 due to current market :/ )
4 gigs RAM (at LEAST 3 gigs)
MINIMUM core 2 duo processor, 2.0 GHz (or equivalent)
at LEAST 320GB hard drive

...any other helpful specifications, just ask.

Thanks for any help!

You'll need much more than a 2.0GHz processor for any kind of gaming these days. 2.8 would be about the minimum.
This would be a good pre-built system for your needs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16883227200
