I'll give a little background info right here- my current PC is using an i5-3470 CPU, GT 620 2 GB, and 8 gigs of RAM. I can play skyrim at low settings 1080p, or at mid settings but with 25-40 FPS. Games like DOTA 2 run on Ultra settings flawlessly. I got this computer as a christmas gift from my father. I really wanted to upgrade to a better GPU around the time Crysis 3 is released. I was afraid my father would be concerned though if I wanted to upgrade so quickly. Anyway, if I do upgrade my GPU (was looking at the radeon 7850) would I be able to run Crysis 3 or Far Cry 3 on max settings? Also, would my current PSU (350w) be able to handle it? And how would I avoid my father being disappointed that I wanted to upgrade the GPU suddenly?
Any help is appreciated.
