advice on a gaming computer

  londonlion 08:34 20 Aug 2008

hi, my friend builds computers and he is making me one for around £500,

all i wanted to know was if this is a suitable video card to play games (such as Crysis, Age Of Conan) at maximum possible graphics (3.0 shaders dx10) with no lag

the computer itself is going to be top spec with a quad core, ddr4 etc (sorry i don't know all the technical terms, i'm just going off what he has told me).

cheers for any help
