Okay so I bought a prebuilt ASUS desktop from Best Buy in June of this year.
This is the model type if it helps:
I want to upgrade this computer so I can run games like Skyrim and Battlefield 3 if possible. I tried system Requirements Lab before coming here and it said I passed everything, but graphics in both minimum and recommended. I'm hopeful that this means I could just buy a graphics card. Could I replace this graphics card and be set to play?
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit
Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
Also the website for this computer provides these 4 as choices.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 1G
NVIDIA GeForce GTS450 1G
NVIDIA GeForce GT430 1G
NVIDIA GeForce GT420 1G
Would any of these be good for playing the games I want to? I don't want a card that just runs on minimum settings because I already have a PS3 for that.
My budget is somewhere between $300 and $400. I'm aiming for best quality, but I'm also aiming to spend as little as possible. I'd really like to find a middle ground between price and quality if possible.
Also I live in Pennsylvania, USA
I appreciate any and all help. It might be quite obvious that I have no idea what I'm doing.
