Looking at giving my computer an upgrade. I purchased it about two years ago. Im looking at upgrading my video card, RAM, and my power supply if needed. Could definitely use some help here on making sure what I get will work and work well.
I'm really trying to build a computer that can play some of the newer games well maybe like Crysis, Last Remnant, Fallout 3, etc. I currently run Windows XP. My monitor runs on resolution 1280x1024
I really need help with choosing a video card and then deciding if I need to upgrade my power supply. The power supplies are the area I really don't understand in determining how many watts I need.
I can't SLI. I only have 1 PCI Express x16 slot. I'm looking to buy a really solid single video card without going overboard. I have a total budget of about $300-350. The Radeon 4800 series cards look great overall, might get one of them.
Would appreciate recommendations and just help making sure what I buy is compatible and good for the money. Thanks.
These are the main parts I have currently.
