Toxict51 is right, u need a real v-card. One of the reason i like capcom is their games aren't demanding. For eg. With 9600gt u can play devil may cry 4, resident evil 5, street fighter iv, with max setting and x4 aa and get 40-60 fps. Post the psu specs. If u have weak psu hd 4670 or nvidia 240gt gddr5 will be good 4 u. Do u understand swahili?

If you buy a 9000 series GeForce card, make sure the 2nd digit is a 6 or higher. 9300, 9400, 9500 are NOT gaming graphics...you'd need a 9600 or better. The same can be said of the 6000, 7000 & 8000 series.

yh but i'd like to reply jam here a lil bit the geforce 6000 cards are becoming old u said that the 6 and higher but the 6600GT was a gaming card the 7600 they can play old games and some decent ones but on low the 6800ultra can handle most decent games on medium settings low resolution
the 7800GS would be kinda good the the 8800gts and higher for the 8000 series ;)

I'm not suggesting that anyone get a 6000 series card....I'm just commenting on the way nvidia model numbers work. The 1st digit in the generation, the 2nd digit is the performance level. If the 2nd digit is 5 or less, the card isn't good for gaming. For example:

6200 = bad
6600, 6800 = good

7300 = bad
7600, 7800, 7900 = good

8400, 8500 = bad
8600, 8800 = good

9400, 9500 = bad
9600, 9800 = good

There are also "tag letters" that you need to ge concerned about...SE, LE, XT, GS, GT, etc.

If you don't have a decent power supply, that would also have to be upgraded. Go with kuwese's recommendation - GeForce GT 240 with GDDR5.

yea but we still dont know ur psu specs but looking at it gt 240 is a low powered card if u can post ur psu specs amps wattage voltages
maybe we can see
but again having a core quad processor must have a good psu but post ur specs its better.
if the specs wre good u can even get the HD 5750 it costs 139 in USA idk how much in malysia the gt240 costs 95-105 in USA but the comaprison between the two is totally different the HD5750 will beat the gt240

Dude, if you really want to play a game, i strongly suggest you quit fooling around with the video card thing. The cost of a decent card plus the upgrade needed could cost you more than a game console like xbox360. More often than not, a card itself is already as expensive as a console. I've been there. People are dumping their old 360s now for the new slim model. Go get a console, man. I got a nearly new one (65nm cpu/gpu) for around 213 bucks and with a 1080i-supported LCD it runs like dream. Plus, no more worry about the endless "upgrade" thing, the "fps" thing, tweaks, settings and others. Upgrading PCs for gaming isn't really worth it. You wait like 2 years for a port, and then you spend more doughs on upgrading for an "new" game that is actually 2 years old.
