    Default video card upgrade info

    For now I cannot afford to buy a new gaming computer so I am looking at ways to improve what I have for now. My video card is a Geforce 9100 and it sucks with this game (10min of play then 5 min of lag). I do not know a lot about this stuff so I am hoping to get some guidance here on a reasonable upgrade for now. I will be upgrading my PSU from 300 to 450-500. My motherboard has one PCIeX16 slot available. There are also three PCIeX1 slots but I have no idea what those are for.

    Any recommendations on affordable video cards that fit into a PCIeX16 slot that can run RIFT with decent performance? Thanks.

    Maybe someone who has a similar CPU can give you a better idea but, from looking at the benchmarks I'm not sure upgrading just the gfx card will get you far.

    I run gtx 460 SLI and with your cpu I highly recommend buying a single gtx 460 for 150$. check on newegg and make sure you have enough psu to handle the extra load it will take. But other than that amazing bang for your buck!
