    With that, I'd recommend upgrading literally everything for "High" settings. Especially in Dragon Age 2.

    Dragon Age 2 Requirements (Recommended)
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz Processor or equivalent
    RAM: 4 GB (Vista) or 2 GB (XP)
    Video: ATI 3850 512 MB or greater
    NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater
    DVD ROM (Physical copy)

    Note that, personally, I don't believe in building a machine to the required, but always above. I've rarely seen a "Recommended" machine actually run a game on the highest settings flawlessly. It's always best to over-shoot.

    We could help if you give us a budget and whether you can put it together yourself.

    I'm with mopar here, provide us with a budget and we can give you some suggestions. I personally would say you should start working on an entire new system, possibly a budget one if you can't afford more as what you have is quite dated. If you do decide to go the new system route, please let us know what resolution you game at and if you will be needing a new copy of Windows.

    Hmm alright my budget is around 400 euros.so would be better to sell this current machine and maybe add it to the budget i got right now to buy one more powerful?or its a waste to upgrade this one?the one i have right now is 3 years old.thx

    Suggest building an entirely new rig. See how much you can actually sell your current rig for and then give us a final budget. Someone here will definitely be able to recommend a solid new build for you.
