With your CPU, I think a Radeon 7750 would be a good match without the CPU holding it back.

Could go up to a 7770 or even 7850 with that budget though.

Hello smeezekitty thanks for your quick responses also another thing I should know after buying this is how easy is to install it?

Not too bad. I installed one yesterday. Basically you take out the placeholder plate in the case the push the card straight down and lock it. Then tighten the backplate.

As a side note, I had to use the onboard video to change the primary display from onboard to PCI-E in the BIOS or else I would just get a black screen from the GPU.

Might bottleneck alittle under certain conditions but that does not mean performance will be bad.

There should be no issues.
