    Hi guys, as BF4 is coming out in a few days I was thinking of upgrading my current graphics card from GeForce GT 545 to GeForce gtx 660 Ti. This is my first time upgrading my pc. I know my current graphic card can't handle bf4 in super/ultra settings since I can't play ultra on Total War Rome 2. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    CPU: i5-2320 @ 3.00GHz(4cpu)
    8gb RAM(2x 4gb)

    this is a prebuilt desktop from dell: http://www.dell.com/ie/p/xps-8300/pd

    looking at the price of 660 and 760, i think i can get a gtx 760, but my concern is if it will be compatible with my current pc.

    Msi afterburner, or open the side of your case read us the model number on the motherboard, i've seen Dell Xps420 from 2004 use newer graphics cards (but needed a ram upgrade). Just get us that little bit of info and I will be sure to help you

    Don't forget to check the Watt of the power supply and also it will need a 6-pin PCI-Express if you don't have this you should get a molex to PCI-Express with the Graphics Card but this isn't always the case

    I'd get a 7950, you can get it fairly cheap (180€) if your computer can handle it.
