Well is modernwarfare2 going to be directx11? and I'm guessing any games in the future will be directx11 so yes I will.
Should I get a cheap replacement for the time being?

Well what I really meant was what games out there are DX11?

I did some quick research, here's a good thread to read:
http://forums.amd.co...threadid=110031

If I were in your spot I'd just get the best I can afford for now. There's always the "upgrade" option down the track, but considering newer and better parts are always coming out, by the time DX11 games are popular we'll probably all have newer computers by then. Who knows?

Just keep your eye on the research.

The PC games being console ports is true, and that thread makes a lot of sense.

Well I think I am done here for now gentlemen. My computer guy just called and he was able to fix the Floppy Error and the graphics card is coming tomorrow. But really thankyou thankyou thankyou for all of the help and patience, I just wish we could have come to the conclusion on here. But really thankyou.

Well now I am getting another weird phenomenon occurring. I have seen loads of updates on my computer. But they come in pop-ups. One I have seen is for Flashplayer 10, which I have, quicktime, java, and a firewall window telling me that firefox has been blocked, do I wish to unblock it. Why is this... I hope it isn't because of a virus, but it's really annoying me. The updates look legit but I ctrl + alt + del all of them because I know that nowadays if you click the x it can release a virus.

All of those updates seem legit, although I'm not sure why Firefox has been blocked by the Windows Firewall.

Make sure your antivirus is up-to-date and run a full scan before allowing the updates if you're a bit worried about it.

Thankyou for the quick reply, and thankyou rshaffer, stettybet0, and troy for all of the help, I know the issue wasn't resolved by just using geekstogo, but really thankyou for your patience and cooperation.

I will definitely use geekstogo in the future! :)

lester jones,

 

Please do not post inside another members thread when you are looking for assistance for yourself, your question/s or computer problem/s may appear similar but in fact be nothing alike, may cause confusion to any ongoing thread, will send unwelcome notifications to peoples inbox and ultimately lead to your request for help going unanswered, start your own thread and we will gladly assist you there asap, thank you for your understanding. 

 

It would also help if you include in your OP any troubleshooting steps that you may have tried yourself.
