I'm glad you wasted your $ on that very low quality 600WATT PSU on a system that draws 200 WATTS
well well, arent you quite hte lil hardware snob. It's called expandability. PLus how do you know how many HDDs, fans, etc I have in my system?

HDD's fans draw almost nothing.
But its all good just can't see a 430 playing the game very well.

Ouch on the GS they work for best buy and are paid like 8 bucks a hour lol.
Actually I work a full time job and build systems on the side. Close to 20 years now.

Rate my system then.
i5 2500k @4.2 GHz (had it stable @ 4.9 ) backed it off since nothing can use it.
3x 64 GB SSD in raid5 ( very fast and safety with the 5 setup )
2x 1 TB CB HDD in raid1 ( everything backed up )
6970 @ 950/1425
Gigabyte Z68 MB
Corsair TX 850 PSU yes it's overkill.
8GB Memory

I need a new dell video card because well its the only thing well place I can buy from right now with the good cerdit I have from them.

At the 'can you run it" site I passed everything even the card except it said I have a 249 mb and need atleast a 256 mb.<----not sure what that even means.

I can play the game just find with shadows off but I wish to play the game as strong as I can. Now I know less than nothing when it comes to PC's so any help would be great and yes sadly it has to be a dell product.

Dell has a upgrade section on their website or just call them they will look at your dell PC and give you a option.
