Thanks for the info! <3 One more question though, as I said, I have no clue what does what inside of the computer but I do know that certain parts can only work with certain computers. If I have an Acer Vertion, what type of graphics card can I buy to upgrade it so I can play the game better? (My computer didn't come with that graphics card, I bought it and installed it myself but it was luck that it actually fit, I just looked for the one on the requirements of the first Amnesia XD) Thanks again!!
Your graphics card doesn't need to be any certain type to work. Just make sure that your motherboard has a PCI-E slot (which your specs you posted leads me to believe it does) and that the card actually fits inside your computer. As for which card you should get that depends on your budget. I wouldn't consider too high as your CPU could bottleneck you. A 550/560 TI should be fine and is probably a decent price now. If you want to go all out and get a super GPU in case you upgrade your CPU in the future that's cool too. I have a 670 right now and it's serving me well. The 700 series is out too so if you have the money you could get a 770 or something like that. That would probably lead to a bottleneck though.

Really though it's up to your choice. Just remember that for Nvidia xy0, x designates the line of cards, Nvidia is on the 700 series, and y designates the relative power. Lower than x50s is getting into the low end, x50 is about mid range and x60 and up is getting into high end cards. It's similar with AMD but theirs is 4 numbers, xyz0. I think that x is still the line, which AMD is on the 7000 series cards. y and z are varying degrees of power, so a 5870 is better than a 5670. I'm not as familiar with the tiers with AMD cards though.

I kinda figured that it didn't need to be any specific type to work, I just wanted to maybe change it to something a little better, I don't mind playing games on low settings though(Always paranoid my computer's going to overheat). What's a PCI-E slot? I'm assuming that it's the spot where I plugged my current graphics card into. My budget, I don't mind paying something around the 100 range as for the rest of your reply, you completely lost me XD

I only thought of upgrading my graphics card because my old computer wouldn't play the first Amnesia so I bought a new computer. The guy at Best Buy said that this computer had everything that I needed to play the game but I got it home, installed it and I got a black screen. It wouldn't play on this one either because it had a really low end graphics card built into the mother board (Guy at Best Buy lied to me) but luckily my uncle opened the case and he found an expansion slot for a graphics card so I bought the Nvidia one just to play it.

Power Supply matters as well. If she has a 400W psu for example, that won't be able to work.

How would I tell how big my power supply is? And I'm a girl by the way ^_^
