  1. it may be a little more than you want but a good midrange card is the 650ti boost.
    something like this

    need better info. even google does not know what that means. you may be best off with something that just runs off of the PCI lane. like
  5. i would guess based on the name of the psu he's running a 230W psu... which would mean he'd be best off with something like a 7750... which is a 50W gpu.
  6. the one I linked above is a 7750 and around $90. saphire is a good company for amd cards. I was kinda guessing the same with the 230 W. I would think any PSU could power the PCI ;ane. I would hope
  7. buddy get saphhire hd 7750 @rs 6700.it will work with your pc

    SAPPHIRE HD 7750 2GB GDDR3 ?

    Do i need Cooler Master 500Watt ?
  9. go with a 1gb card, the 7750 isn't a powerful enough gpu to use 2gb of ram.

    you don't need a new psu to use the new gpu. if you want to buy a new gpu you're welcome to it, just try to stick to companies like Antec, Seasonic, Corsair and the like.
  10. Antec, Seasonic, Corsair and Silverstone for psu.

    A good cheap psu that will handle a 650ti would be an Antec vp450 or a Corsair CX430.
