Hello, everyone. To be honest, I'm not sure if this is the proper subforum, so it it isn't, I apologize. I understand how to use a computer, but when it comes to actual hardware, I am completely clueless.
Alright, last night, I finished playing The Witcher on my PC, and I would now like to move onto The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. I have a bit of an older PC, however, and therefore am going to need to upgrade my video card if I want to play it, as it won't run right now. My problem is that I am completely ignorant as to what will be compatible with my current tower, and what will not. Here are my specs:
ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series
64-Bit Windows 7
Dell Studio 540
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Dell Inc. 1.0.4
Link Width: x16
Max Supported: x16
Now, I have been up since 8 AM this morning researching all this, and from what little information I have been able to retain, I have figured out the following:
1. The fact that my PSu is only 350w means I'm probably going to have to upgrade my power supply.
2. The fact that my Graphics Interface Version is "PCI-Express" is somehow crucial to understanding what I can and can't use with my PC.
Looking around Newegg, I found the following AMD video card:
Glancing over its specs, it seems to be more than enough for what I would need. I'll also need to upgrade the power unit, but there's some reccomendations on the page there on newegg, so I figure I'll just get one of those along with it. But I don't want to order them if they're not going to be compatible with the tower I have. Would any of you happen to have any ability to tell me whether that particular video card would be compatible with my hardware, and, if not, have any suggestions for what I should look at?
Thank you very much for answering. I'm so totally lost on this, and I'm all stressed out.
Oh god help me I have no idea what I am doing.
