    Looking for new graphics card.


    So I'm not sure if this actually the right area to be posting something like this, lol. If its not tell me where to put it please. But I'm looking to get a new card to play games, preferably one that'll be decent for Witcher 3 when its out. right now the one I have is some integrated card, it managed to do Witcher 2 on the lowest settings, but still had fps problems. My power supply is also only 2-300 watt, so I'll probably need a new one of those too.

    Heres the current specs, if you need anything else let me know! :)
    AMD A6-3620 APU with Radeon HD graphics, 2.20 ghz
    8 gigs ram.

    Hey there! Which motherboard are you using? What is your Budget?
    Also, in my opinion, a card capable of playing with witcher 3 your CPU will probably bottleneck, dont take my opinion as gospel as i may be wrong, Also your CPU overall may not be capable of running the witcher 3, we willl have to wait to see what requirements are!

    Not sure on the motherboard to be honest, its a prebuilt one, but it has a slot for a graphics card. My budget is about 4-500 dollars.

    I doubt the A6 will handle The Witcher 3, the A Series aren't really up to the task of high end gaming. My advice would be to upgrade the motherboard and CPU first then concentrate on a graphics card.

    Yeah if you spent $500 on a top card you'd have a major bottleneck, the only A series i would use for "Proper" gaming would be the A10 series, and even then, FX is the way to go in terms of AMD. New Mobo, New Cpu then focus on GPU as Boozad said.

    My budget should be about 6-700 dollars by my final estimations. I know that'll probably limit my choices some.
