    Video Card/Computer Part Upgrade

    [FONT=Book Antiqua]Hello, I was wondering what spec I should upgrade on my computer so I can run valve games better. My computer can not handle smoke or a lot of things on the screen at once, and I don't know much about computers, so if you could recommend me a good video card or party that would be awesome

    If your comp can't run Valve games then it's rather destitute.
    Same as Justin, current, and budget.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    while you definitely need a gpu upgrade, it wouldn't hurt to upgrade your cpu either. games don't only use power from your gpu.
