    So I'm making a computer and it's awesome! Only one thing: I know very little about graphics cards among other things, I know this isn't the best place to ask these things as DkS is mainly console, but since I've been here a while, I figured I'd post it here.

    Anyway, I'm looking for this thing to run a game such as TF2 or Kerbal Space Program on MAXIMUM POW- I mean settings.

    Anywho if you could give me an idea of what I'm doing, it'd be appreciated.

    Edit: I've updated it slightly, and I'm still unsure which graphics card to use. So I added a poll. But here it is the updated build.

    Hmm well that graphics card is REALLY low end. But i'll tell you more soon. I need to see what those games require.

    Okay well both of those games would be able to be run by that fine, but only since they are really low graphics games. I would still recommend getting something a little better though just so it can run other games too.

    Thanks, I had one that I was eyeing, but since it was about $100 I wanted to hold off and be sure that I wasn't going completely overkill.

    Well the 550 is better, no question about it really.

    But it just depends how much you want to spend. The spec's of a 630 are not bad for that price. So if you aren't wanting to be playing newish(graphically) games on highish settings then it should be fine.

    But if you've got the money to use for the 550 I'd recommend that as it would last longer before having to buy something better.

    Thanks again Revan, budgeting is starting to hit me somewhat hard, so I'm probably going to go with the 630 as it should do what I'm wanting it to do for me.
