Low frames of First person shooters need GPU advice

I have an AMD Raedon 6450 HD 2 GB GPU. I was wanting to know if I could just buy a new GPU and replace it or if I should get a pciex16 chip, if so which GPU and or CHIP should I get? I am currently using a 42" flat screen at 1080p and I only get 20 fps on low graphics for arma 2.

Is this for the tablet that's in your specs? If so, you probably won't be able to change the graphics chip yourself, if it's even upgradable to something else. You might be stuck with what you have, unfortunately.

Sadly, most laptops/tablets are woefully underpowered when it comes to playing games.

Yes you can very easy but.......

We need to know what kind of power supply you are working with because anything below 550 will not work out 650 to 700w minimum with either card the AMD more or less 600w so i would get like a 650 to 700 if you can swing it if not back to a lower GPU

The GTX960 you should be safe using a 450 to 500 watt so i would go GTX 960 4GB that would be the best bang for the buck

I agree with Solar. I wouldn't spend the money to upgrade to something that will be a little better. I would wait until I could upgrade to something that will last you for 3 or 4 years, whatever came out. I would get a minimum 750W Power supply either Seasonic, Corsair, XFX or EVGA and a 960 or 970. You will get good framerates in most any game that comes out in the next few years.
