The determining features are your Power supply and budget. We need to know both.

Also, your GPU does not support DX11, so it wont show it.

i can throw a good 250$ into a new video card. i can most likely sale the current 1. payed 100$ not long ago.
as for demand, my current way i get 60FPS but cannot go into ultra or i lag. like i seen it on ultra but i can achieve it. im on the setting below it. its ok but i want MORE!

how do i find out my power supply?

Easiest way is to pop the side panel off and look at the sticker on the side of the PSU.

Important parts are total wattage and 12V rail amperage. [there can be multiple 12V rails]

Upgrade your system first. Any modern GPU is going to choke to death on a Q8200. A 2500k/P67orZ68 setup wouldn't cost you that much and would be a 2:1 increase in performance, minimum, even with your old video card /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
