I just bought a PC - HP Pavilion p6540d. I know it's not much but I want to upgrade it one item at a time.
For its graphics, my p6540d only came with this: Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X4500 HD - up to 782 MB total available graphics memory.
I mean, come on... I don't even have a video card.
So I reckon getting one is the most important and I'm planning to get ATI RADEON HD4650 1GB DDR2/128bit but I'm not sure if my "system" can handle it. So please let me know.
Below is the PC specs. Am I able to buy a video card for it?
Do I have to upgrade my RAM first before getting a 1GB video card? Is my processor okay? If it is not necessary to upgrade processor, I'd rather not for now as my priority is the graphics because I'm a bit into gaming.
