Hello..
I wanna buy a new graphic card to play games with high graphic requirements like CoD4 or Assassin's Creed, and others of that kind, but i don't know which one is suitable for my processor. It's a Sempron 2.7 Ghz, i don't remember which model it is cause i'm not in that PC atm... So if anyone can help me to choose one that won't be limited by my slow CPU and yet can play CoD4 smoothly at least in low settings, i'd appreciate it.

Hmm Rana X3 does fine with rather powerful single GPUs but i would say a Sempron would definitely hold back the more powerful ones so if u are fine with reduced resolution/settings i would hit a cheap HD 4830/GTS250/HD 4850/HD 4770?

Also before you buy a new GFX card make sure you psu can handle it.
the more powerful the card the more of a demand it will put on the psu.
And I bet since your only using a 45w cpu that your psu is not going to be that big.
250w~350w maybe, anyway, check it out before your buy anything.

PII 1100T (Extinct)
Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
4Gb of Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz DDR3 (Going strong)
2x1GB 5850's (On their last lags)
Corsair HX850W (Awsome)
NZXT Phantom case (too ***** big)

well we need to know the kind of sempy, if its a 140 it could be unlocked if your mobo supports ACC, otherwise your will bottleneck just about anything faster than a 9600GT/HD4670 lol
