What graphics card do you recommend?

Hey guys, I just wondered what graphics card I should get to run Dead Space 2, I loved the first one and i'm running a bit late on playing second one which I really need to get playing ;D.

Hi,

Is it a pc or laptop?

If it's a laptop then you may as well forget about upgrading the graphics as it's usually not possible.

If it's a pc then it depends on your budget and also what power supply you have?

Cheers

Paul.

It would help to know the model, wattage and amps of your PSU.

For that budget I would recommend either the AMD HD 6870 which is around the 140 mark or the nvidia GTX560ti which is around the 180 mark.

You would need a good quality branded psu for this, I would say at least 650watt.

Is there any reason this thread is now marked as solved?

I recommend the nVidia 550 ti. It's an amazing graphics card (it ranks #10 overall on videocardbenchmark.net). Also at a price of 65-75, it's a steal.

Here are all of the 550 Ti's. Find one that suits you
