hi guys

New here be nice :hello:

Ive had my desktop for about 4 years now,and think its time to upgrade a little, but not being hardware savvy,iam not sure if getting a better graphics card will make any drastic change to my gaming experience or will i need more memory, better cpu etc.

Thing is i cant really afford a whole new rig at the moment so iam hoping a better card will do the trick.

I guess more fps in games like project cars,gta5,battlefield,is what iam hoping for.my budget is anywhere from £120 to £200 i could even go for a used card if need be.Could any of the kind users here give my a few pointers i would be very grateful,ive posted a pic of my specs if that helps.

 

thanks lucas

Not definitely. On computers compatibility is never 100%. However it should work and so it's like 99.9% or so.
