Windows 7: Graphic Card Guidence Help

Graphic Card Guidence Help

Here is the deal, I have a Game I would like to play (Guild Wars 2) and when I played it
it was lagging like hell so I had to reduce the graphics settings to the lowest i could and the lag went away (most of it). I meet all the system requirement like RAM and CPU, but i think it was the graphics card that was letting me down (i am not to sure about graphics cards so thats why i need your help).

My graphics card is: AMD 760G

So can you please tell me how good or how bad it is and is it suitable to play games like Guild Wars 2 (it has really good graphics just search your self on youtube ).
If not, what is a good graphics card that would play Guild Wars 2 and not lag a bit? and how much money would i need to spend on a good graphics card?

Sorry for bombarding you guys with questions, i just have no knowledge in this stuff and if you were wondering about the system specs for Guild Wsrs 2 Here it is (under game FAQ). if you can help me out that would be great and very much appreciated, Thanks!

AMD 760G has AMD 3000 Series. I will suggest go for ATI 5670 HD 1GB DDR5. Its not a costly card and can handle most of the games.Newegg.com - XFX HD-567X-ZNF3 Radeon HD 5670 1GB 128-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Thanks for that just a few thing I want to clarify, will I need a new motherboard for that graphics card? And (the stupidest question of all) if I upgrade my whole computer like RAM CPU and so on will that graphics card still be compatible?

MCE, if your current motherboard has a PCIe slot then this card will be compatible. Also, If you upgrade your PC even then this card will be compatible. But, make sure that you have a good PSU (500W to 600W will be sufficient).

Can you also let us know what is your budget? cause, we can suggest you some more better cards that way.

Ok first of all how do I find out my PSU and how do I know if I have a PCIE slot? My budget is about $80 at the moment (would there be any good cards for that price? Ie like the one you mentioned)
