Graphics card for NFS RUN


Mar 22, 2012
My PC has Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 2.4 GHz processor, running Windows Ultimate 64bit.
500 GB HDD.
Mercury PIG41U motherboard.
Nvidia 6200 TC 128 MB graphics card.

I am unable to play NFS The Run in my PC.
I understand that my graphics card is the bottle neck.
Can somebody suggest few graphics card present in the current market that cost less and can play the game in medium or low graphics mode if not high.

your graphics card isn't the "bottleneck" i would say that you need to change everything to play that game, best solution buy a new computer.

i have tested it with with my old e8400 and the performance also was bad, so you will need to change both, CPU/GPU to play that game.

of course that if you add a good video card there youy will be able to play it, but then you will be bottlenecked by the CPU. it is going to be a waste of money.

I would say first buy the GPU. it can be something like this one if you are going to play at 720p~1080p resolutions:
or one for a little less:

and later when you got the money buy a new CPU also:

you will see that the performance will upgrade a lot specially in cpu dependant games;

don't forget to make sure your psu can handle the new video card before installing it, i would recommend you if you don't already have a good one:

so just buy a new motherboard when you get the new CPU with 1155 socket use your DDR3 ram your HDD, and you will be good to gow.
