I recently built a computer. Here are my specs as far as I know;
2tb hdd
500w power supply unit
Foxconn MotherBoard- 45CMX/45GMX/45CMX-K
RAM/memory - 2 gigabytes
Processor- intel celeron E1200 at 1.6 Gigahertz

Operating system- Windows 7 Ultimate edition 64 bit service pack one

I am looking for a graphics card that will allow me to play fair end games (crysis-if possible but I do not own it at all yet) eg Bioshock, FUEL, and portal 1 and 2. I have searched the Internet, Forums alike and cannot personnally get any reliable information. What do you suggest?

This will get the specs of your computer.
Publish a Snapshot using Speccy

Also can you open the computer and have a look at the model of the power supply? What is the budget?

The model of my psu does not seem to have a make on it. All it says is ATX 500 switching mode power supply. and then the power ratings Barcode says 201105P15704. Budget is £100 although cheaper would be nice.

Thank you for providing a speccy download link. I am currently downloading it now.

Any chance of taking a photo of it and what online website store do you prefer buying from?

So the motherboard only has a PCI slot and no PCI-E slot, correct? Can you please still post the speccy?

I'm sorry, but I highly doubt you will be able to play those games at reasonable framerates using an Intel Celeron processor at 1.6GHz. If that motherboard is indeed a Foxconn 45CMX, you do have the capability to use a PCI-E slot. However, given your CPU, your graphics card will be severely bottlenecked, to say nothing about the age of your CPU.

It's possible to upgrade to a Core 2 Duo which will give some decent performance.

Indeed, but it may be more cost effective in the long run to simply cut your losses and move on to a new platform instead of throwing money at an LGA 775 system. Crysis is one of the few games that truly need as much CPU as you can throw at it, and a Core 2 Duo simply won't cut it. Newer games are demanding more from the CPU and GPU.

I thought Crysis was just graphics hog. Might have to try the game myself on my 6 core :P

I thought Crysis was one of those games that put a demand on both GPU's and CPU's, like Final Fantasy XIV.

So you don't exactly know which one it is, correct?

I meant it was a game that stressed both graphics cards and CPU's equally without focusing more on one or the other.

But you said "thought".

I haven't played the game (I don't like shooters) and from benchmarks taken when the game first came out, I THOUGHT that is what Crysis did to PC's. I can, however, confirm that FFXIV is hard on almost all hardware configurations.
