Been stressin' out about the computer I'm, hopefully, going to be able to get for Xmas. I really, really want something I can use for a while and run games well enough with. I'll have to get it from bestbuy, as most of my money supplements will be bestbuy cards and mum, so, no internet ordering. :\
I've been looking at this: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gateway+-+Desk...p;skuId=9536415
- 6 Gigs of ram, 2.6ghz processor, 1TB hard-drive, Windows 7..all that good stuff.
Crappy graphics card. All bestbuy computers have really, really terrible integrated ones.
So, to fix this, I looked up the newegg page of it, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16883113109
*Near the bottom of the specifications list, it says it has a PCI express slot.
Now, I was thinking, could I buy a PCI express graphics card, slip it in, and be good to go? I really want to be able to run things near a high-ish level. *Fallout 3, Aion, Left4Dead 2, TF2, etc.
If I can, which I hope to god I can, slip in a PCI express graphics card, which would I use? I've been looking into it but a solid answer from you would be much better. Maybe something around the 100-150$ area? I don't know, really. All the graphics cards are just random words and numbers in the title, and the reviews all sound the same about every one I look at. "Sucks for gaming, etc etc etc"
1. Can I use a PCI Express card on this computer?
2. If I can, which should I get? 100-150$ region.
