I currently have a dell Precision T3400 with the following basic specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33 Ghz x2
4 GB DDR2 RAM
Nvidia Quadro NVS 290 with 256MB 64 bit DDR2
Dell 0TP412 motherboard
Windows Vista (Can upgrade to 7 if necessary, but I'd rather just leave it as is)
The graphics card is in the PCIe 16x slot and i was looking to replace it to improve the performance of Diablo 3. I don't have much of a budged and basically only want a card good enough to run D3 smoothly. As of right now, it is playable, but i'm getting an input delay of about a half second and the whole game feels a bit jumpy.
My question is would a newer graphics card improve the performance of D3 or will my system bottleneck the card?
I was looking at the GeForce GT 610 as it is cheap and has 4x the memory as my current card and has DDR3 rather than DDR2.
Thanks in advance for your help and let me know if I need to share more of my system specs.
