Hello. I would like to upgrade my a6200n PC to a moderate-end PC. I'll buy the parts around Christmas and January, but I'm doing careful planning, which I cannot teach myself how to. My PC is known to have an intergrated graphics card; a Nvida Geforce 6120se or somewhat like it. Will I be able to remove it and replace it with another one? And which graphics card do you recommened for playing games such as MW3 BF3 Skyrim and such? And what PSU? Sorry, don't know alot about PCs. I'm looking to spend no more than 200 or so on those two parts, since I'm also planning to buy a new processor and RAM. I also have Vista 32-bit running.
Solved! Go to Solution.

you should start with your pc product informations:
You have a integrated graphics 'card' - this means a chip on the mainboard.
As mentioned in your product specs, this chip will be disabled when a graphics card is inserted, so no remove needed.
Skyrim seems to be a favorite at the moment :-)
Check this link:
For a moderate-end PC just check the middle column of nvidia products (similar for ati/amd radeon, but you're running nvidia at the moment, so you can stay with this manufacturer with less problems than switching to radeon):
>I'm also planning to buy a new processor and RAM
Well, you have an 5000+ at the moment, there's not much to get higher (5600+, if this is worth?).
If you need more, it`s better to go with a new pc.
Of course you can learn with this one and build yourself a nice pc in one or two years. Just start with a card and a psu (also some hints in the link above).
