    Hey guys I'm in the market for a new or newer Video Card but I am not that computer savey. I do know what I want it to do, I want it to have a Hdmi Output and also want it to run games such as WoW and MW2 great as in high FPS as I am a big gamer. I will also be using for picture programs and such. I will also be looking for a monitor too, but more importantly a new video card. I hope you guys can point me in the right direction as you always do. Thanks a ton OT. :x:

    P.S
    If you happened to have a good one for sell let me know. Video Card or Monitor with HDMI btw.

    Computer specs? Does your motherboard support PCI-E x16 2.1? What was your current video card?

    PCI-E x16 has 1.0, 2,.0, and 2.1. It's backwards compatible, but you won't get the full benefit.

    Budget?

    Basically, it won't be able to send/receive as much information as it can handle.
