whats a decent one that isnt too expensive? would this enable me to play something like say the witcher 2? or would I need to upgrade cpu also?

EDIT: right now I can "play" Witcher 1 but its not very smooth even in low settings

What do you class as not too expensive?

erm well I also wanted to get a ps4 so if its 300-400 dollars I would just be saving for that instead.

You need to look up what PSU you have if you get a video card

A HD 7770 or HD 7850 would be fine and not break the bank. It may be worth waiting for AMD's new series though, we're supposed to get information about it next week.

The Witcher 1's performance is just bad. You could probably play TW2 at a low resolution and low settings.
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!
