Edit:

here's the list of graphics cards:

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX 768 MB
XFX - NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
any others you'd like to share with me?

anything that will be able to run with the new TR Underworld or any other new NextGen games?
[the cheaper the better haha]

To run TRU with good quality/performance you need a video board up from NV Geforce 8 series or ATI Radeon 3xxx series. Not for that case and PSU definitely...

Holly ****!
well i was way off! haha

i was told it was a 6 series, but i guess not.
gosh i don't even know what to do now.
anyone wanna share their wisdom with me?? :)

what would you suggest i go out and find.
DON'T LOOK AT THE COMPUTER NAME OR LINK ANYMORE... I'll get a new one.

how about:
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX 768 MB

The thing is that GeForce 6 series is SM 3.0 capable, so it supports Next Gen, but generally the board is weak - it'll be slow and glitchy on newer games including TRU.

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX 768 MB is OK.
Actually if the board allows you to run TRL in Next Gen with most features on with good performance, it will run TRU well.

How much cash you can spend on the video board and the PC in general (I suppose you plan an upgrade)? If you tell me your budget, I'll provide some useful links :)

ooo yes thank you.

well my dad just bought a new one not long ago and he's been fancying mine for a while. so the pc price is not a problem.

Well... If you have plans to upgrade the whole platform (CPU+MoBo+RAM, etc), post your overall budget and I'll try to help you with suitable config :)
