When im looking at a card what am I looking for?

can I do that dual thing and just buy another one of these cards?

I can only play battlefield 3 smoothly at medium low settings right now with this one.

You don't currently have a video card, the D at the end means you have an APU, in short a GPU/CPU on a single chip. Not really a gaming solution.

Need to know what kind of mobo you have and what your PSU is.

You could run Speccy (google) and get your mobo info if you aren't sure.

That wouldn't be bad so long as your PSU can handle it which it probably can, though as mentioned above we need a bit more info on your system.

wait so you are saying I cant even get this card because I have a cpu/gpu hybrid and I'd need to get both a new cpu and gpu?

Nah, you can still install a discrete GPU if you have an APU, but if it's a pre-built system they likely skimped on the PSU as much as possible. Since you didn't have a stand alone video card you'd want to check and make sure the wattage isn't too low.

You can also do a hybrid crossfire where the APU's graphic chip and a discrete GPU run together but.....from what I've seen that is a less than ideal solution from a technical stand point.

Anyway, you are good on the mobo as it seems to have 2 PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots HOWEVER.....(i'm typing this as i look up your system) they jammed a 350w PSU in there.

If you went with the 7870 (which would give you a significant boost) you'd want to be around 450w min to be safe.

Yeah. That is literally the cord rating.

Assuming this is your system: http://www.asus.com/Desktops/CM1745/

You have a 350w PSU unless someone has upgraded it.

You'd want to upgrade that before you bought a new GPU.

I don't recommend ever skimping on your power supply. A weak PSU can pretty much cause damage to any other part of your system.
