Graphics/Video Card Suggestions for a XPS 8300?

by AsianWizard / April 17, 2013 3:59 PM PDT

Hello everybody,
I play alot of games that require a "good" graphics card and my computer isn't running the games fast and i have to turn the game's video settings to "ultra low" or "very low" in order to get a decent framerate.

Examples of games that i play are:
- DayZ (Arma II Mod)
- Warframe
- War Thunder
- (and soon) Battlefield 4 when it comes out

I'm new to most of this stuff so simplified answers will be the best answers Happy

I have an i7 processor

(if theres any other info needed please let me know)

Thank you for reading,
