Thanks for the suggestions - I'll have a look around for the 5770/6770 and see what the lowest price I can find it.

What cpu do you have? Sign in to follow this Followers 0 Can I upgrade my 8600M GT? Armchair 16:04 10 Sep 11 At-a-glance graphics card performance comparison chart:- http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/gaming-performance-radeon-geforce,review-32251-7.html Looks like your 8600GT is rated just below AMD's current budget card, the HD 6450. I'm considering upping it to 4gb.

A low end new card beats that thing uses less power and has more features...simply not worth bothering with. you said your PSU is around 300w. I would stop using it, and get a new fan as soon as possible personally. General use - internet, photo-processing, some web games, etc.

I don't think you can. I can get by when it comes to spec and components but I don't have much to do with physical assembly of the hardware so I'd be learning on the job. i try to run 2 instance of my game at the same time and it will not do it well: (Vista,Core 2 Duo 1.5ghz, 2GB ram, 256mb on card).
