Hey guys, thanks for your time!
Ok so right now I have an AMD Radeon HD 6850 (Memory 1024MBytes GDDR5)
Since my b-day and Christmas are in this month my folks are asking what the heck I want, but I know they don't have much money so I don't want to push their limits. My question is if there is an affordable graphics card out there that would be worth an upgrade? I'd say max $200? Not really sure.. The cheaper the better obviously.. I don't even know what they can spend. I just want to play the new games without having to always set the settings at their lowest like I do now:/ BUT I'm not needing the highest settings either, just an improvement worth buying. (Though I'd like to see a card that I SHOULD upgrade to for more money just to know where I stand and to gloat over it haha I can make a goal!)
Ok with that said, I may have been left behind in the technology rush lol, however I do know that not just any computer can take on certain graphics cards. Hopefully my computer can even handle an upgrade:) So here is some information on my PC:
Windows 7 64-bit
6GB of ram (I was going to ask for an upgrade to 8GB until I thought about the card)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 940 3Ghz (Socket AM2+)
MB: MSI model: MS-7374 nForce 750a SLI
Edit: Darn I always forget something! I'm also thinking about getting a new 80mm side fan for my case because that one is broken as well. I was wondering if I should have it suck out air or blow air in? I've had temperature problems before so everything I do matters. There is a strong fan in the back sucking air out at 4500RPM and no fan in the front.. I think there isn't one in the front because it's a tight as hell fit and would bring the air into a wall of metal! Here is what the case looks like: http://www.raidmax.com/product/sagitta.html I may have to start a new thread on this, but figured I'd try to throw it in with this post. THANKS AS ALWAYS:)
Thanks in advance for anyone's help! I know this forum is the best at what it does!
