Need a new graphics card

  1. Hey, I'm not all that computer-savy and just joined. I was hoping someone here could offer me some advice/explanations? I want to game on my PC with some pretty high settings. I want to run games like Guild Wars 2, Tera, Tomb Raider, Dead Space 3, Crysis 1 and 2 on max settings.

    AMD FX-6120 3.5GHz
    10GB DDR3
    1TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 7450
    300 Watt


    Height 16."'
    Width 16.2"
    Depth 6.9"

    Additional Information:


    I'm not really sure whether a graphics card I can buy will fit into the computer. I'm also totally lost with this PCI business, since all the graphics cards on newegg seem to be PCI 3 or something and it doesnt appear that this computer has that, and I'm not sure if that makes a difference. Lastly, from what I've read, my PSU may pose a problem, but I don't know how I'm supposed to find out. If someone could recommend me any graphics cards with a price of 300 (though preferably less), that'd be great. Or if they could just elaborate on any of the questions I posed above. Thanks in advance.

    HIS IceQ X H785QN1G2M Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

    Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-450 450W Continuous @ 50°C, 80 PLUS GOLD Certified, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active - PFC Power Supply

    The 7850 isn't a huge card but you will want to measure your case just to be sure.
    Look up what a PCIx16 slot looks like, find it on your motherboard, and measure the length starting from the back of the case.

    I dont think that can run Tomb Raider at max settings (Ultimate Settings). He would need to run High settings (2 away from max) to get 60 FPS.
