    Hello i would like to update my graphics card for my computer of two years old. I currently have trouble running some games such as Starcraft2, which my computer can only handle the lowest settings. Specs included below (from Speccy).

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 63 °C
    Kentsfield 65nm Technology

    6.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 399MHz (6-6-6-18)


    HP w2007 @ 1680x1050
    Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family

    Hard Drives

    This is my pc. : Not purchased from here.

    I was recommended this graphics card, and i need a new power supply and fan as well? I'm really not sure about all this. Any advice is appreciated! Thank you for your time.

    Nice graphics card in that link. And a decent power supply would be about 500wtz. Though you need to be carefull with what your buying in case some of the new products may not fit inside your machine, which may evidently lead to also buying a new case for your pc and moving everything out of your old on into the new one, which isn't a problem but it's a kind of hassle because the inside of computers are so fiddely.

    Anyway, good luck finding your new setup.

    Dazz, x
