Quick question
 
Hey,i was thinking about upgrading to a new graphics card and i was wondering if this would cut it for playing the game without too much lagg.

If that isnt good enough any suggestions within a 150$ price range?

Thanks in advance.:)

look into getting an ASUS ATI 5750 its direct x 11 card and like the 7th or 8th best ya can get and certainly alot better than the one ya linked

MSY in australia which sells for street price/warehouse prices sells it for $160 aussie dollars so I think it fits ya budget and is twice as good as what ya linked :)

DO NOT BUY THAT CARD!. Eco-intelligence means it's heavily underclocked and underrated. It will perform poorly. trust me, i used to have one. While it looks to have good stats, it performs pretty poorly.

Get a ATI HD4850 and an after market cooler if you can. Runs faster and cooler than a 9800GT for less than $100, doesnt draw too much power unlike higher rated cards.

It's what i run on one of my machines and the game looks sick
