So recently ive been playing in a lil laptop that can barelly play TF2 at 25 fps + lag. But turns out that im gonna get a 2008 Gateway that has:
-Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4 ghz
-4 gigs of RAM
-2 HDD of 500 gigs each
-Integrated Intel Graphics
-2 Mic and Speaker ports
-2 flash drive ports
-6 USB ports
-22' HD monitor (that's broken BTW)
-Logitec keyboard and mouse​
Now, why do i post this, well i need help getting the Video Card, possibly a new Monitor (22'-24'), New Speakers (with subwoofers) and the remaining money in games with a $450 budget.
I like FPS, 3rd Person Shooters and Action/Open world Games.

Your definitely going to need a graphics card. Since your on a budget, ATI is gonna be the way to go.

Could you please open it up, and look at the sticker show below, then can you list what is in the graph for us.
It should look like this:


Im pretty sure you do, but could you check if you have a PCIe slot? It should look like this (blue ones in this pic, note: your color may be different):

Or simply the model number should suffice... Since you can find all that information through Gateway's website...
