Need a new video card fpr PC. HELP!
 
I have a Dell Inspiron 545
Installed Memory 4.00 GB
64-bit operating system
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q300 @2.50 GHz 2.50 GHz

I'm wondering what a good video card to get would be. I want to play Star Wars The Old Republic. My computer meets all the specifications except the video card, which is one of those Intel built in dealies.

Can anyone help?

I have a GeForce GTX 550 Ti, good mid-range card that runs SWTOR and Far Cry 3:Blood Dragon without problems at highest settings...

I agree any GeForce card that meets your requirements will be good.

Just about the only original component from the computer I built several years ago is the video card (EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS)

Assuming your motherboard has the proper slot for your choice of video card, it's just a matter of the correct driver.

If you really want to go nuts with comparisons, try newegg. I've built two pcs from that site, great fun.

I just looked at his PCs specs and it's new enough with PCIe slots...
And the current mid-range Geforce cards is the 600-series...
