Hey guys, I'm currently looking to buy a new graphics card which will run most of the new games which are out/coming out with ease and without lag or not a lot of lag. I'm looking for one in the £80-£100 margin, but wouldn't mind cheaper of course
I can tell you the make of my comp if it'll help: Packard Bell iMedia S3210 Desktop/PC.
Unfortunately I'm unable to find anything on that system, a few posts regarding upgrading it(much like yours) but nothing regarding specifications or even support options kind of weird. Anyways if you're comfortable opening the system, which you'll have to do if you upgrade it anyway, look on the side of the power supply and look for a sticker. That sticker should have most of the specs for the unit, will likely be a 350-400W unit though but definitely worth checking for sure.
This is a DTX motherboard so the case is too small.
You will need a new case (about £50), a new power supply (£60-70) and then you will be able to buy something like a Radeon HD6770 and play games on it.
My personal recommendation is to just buy a new PC at that point.
Yea its that one, So i'll have to hold off on getting a new graphics card till i get a new computer? *sigh* that sucks... well i'll have to make due with buying the xbox 360 version of Skyrim/MW3/Assassin's Creed... well thanks for your time and info.
