  • I currently have a HP p6769uk PC.
    • Intel core i7-2600 3.40ghz.
    • It has an Intel(R) HD Graphics Family Card.

I'm looking for some advice on getting a new graphics card and replacing the old one with it.. as i'm wanting to use my desktop for gaming again. I want a pretty decent card that my computer wont bottleneck? aha Any help would be appreciated.

According to the specs here it has only a 300W PSU. So to upgrade the GPU you will most certainly need to upgrade the power supply also. I'll leave the recommendation of a graphics card to the gamers on here.

Newer games, such as elder srolls online and so on. Budget up to £100. I just want a graphics card that's better than my current one, doesn't have to have a crazy amount of difference to it. So would that certainly mean changing my PSU?

You may be disappointed at what you can get for £100. The nearest is something like the HD7790, which is around £125. For this, the recommended PSU is minimum 400w. You may want to look here - it seems Elder Scrolls online isn't very demanding graphically, so you may be able to get away with a relatively inexpensive card. You would find yourself limited, though, should you want to play something that needs more in future. I'd encourage you to try to find some more budget - and that would need to include for the supply - and probably fitting - of a new PSU. £200 would be a reasonable target all in.
