Heres the link for the specs EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 512P3N868AR GDDR3 SDRAM PCI Express 2.0 x16 Graphics adapter | eBay scroll down to see the specs. I'm wondering if this Video card is compatible with my "Compaq Presario SR5110NX". Heres a link to the specs to my computer Compaq Presario SR5110NX Desktop PC - Product Specifications You see, I want this card to play a game (Total War), but a new one came out and the requirements are higher. Will that Video card run-on my computer "Compaq Presario SR5110NX" and still support the requirements? Here are the requirements Shogun 2: Total War System Requirements.

If your Memory and Processor are still the stock ones, you might/definitely will have problems.

What do you mean by "The stock ones"? Do I have the stock ones? Does this mean I will have problems with this video card?

The stock spec of your PC says it only comes with 512MB of RAM, which isn't going to be enough, since the minimum specification of Shogun 2 says 2GB RAM. Your processor (if it is the stock one) is an Athlon 64 3500+, which isn't a bad processor, but you'll probably find it isn't powerful enough for most modern games. Reaching the minimum specification of a game means that it will install, it doesn't mean the game will run at all well. Unless you upgrade your RAM, i doubt the game would allow you to install it.

Can I upgrade my processor? If I can which ones do you recommend? Which would be cheaper? Buying RAM, a new Processor, and a Video Card or buying a new computer?
