Hey, everyone… I’m brand new to this forum, so please be nice to me.
So lately I’ve been thinking about purchasing a new graphic/video card for my computer, due to it not being able to follow the newest games anymore, though there is one thing I don’t quite understand: I am able to run Skyrim with high setting, and it runs O.K. - not perfect, but not something to worry about either. And yesterday I bouth Saints Row 3, and I am not able to play it without it constant lagging at some point; which I find very strange, actually, since the game doesn’t look that much better than Skyrim - but I might’ve misunderstood something (I’m not the very best when it comes to drivers, graphics card etc., but I’m trying to learn).
So I’m currently running a ATI Radeon 5600-series (5670 I believe), and I’ve been pleased with it for the year I’ve had it.
I’m writing this because I need some help finding a new card. I’ve been looking at the Geforce GTX 570, and it seems pretty great and all, but my older brother told me I won’t be able to run it due to my weak processor, which is an i3. I can quickly give you guys a system-specs list, to make everything easier to understand:
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, build 7600)
System Producer: FUJITSU
System Model: ESPRIMO P1510
BIOS: Default System BIOS
Processor: Intel Core i3 CPU - 540 @ 3.07GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.1GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
DirectX-version: DirectX 11
- So I don’t know that is important to know from up there or what isn’t, but if you need any other information, please tell me so I can show it.
Basically I want guidance towards picking the best graphics card for my system, but I still want it to be “top of the line”, though. I would go all in, if it wasn’t for my system’s restrictions - as I am told.
Sorry for the long text, I hope someone will be kind enough to help me out!
Thanks in advance,
