buying my first graphic card (200$) budget!

Hi there,

I have the following parts so far:

Motherboard: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K

RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3

Power Supply: Thermaltake Litepower 450W


So, what i need to upgrade?

First, i think i have to buy a new graphic card, because right now i use the integrated HD graphics.

what is the best card for 200$ budget? i want to be able to play all the modern games.

i think i need to upgrade the power supply and the RAM as well, because 450w will not be enough for a great graphic card.

Thanks in advance :)

    yeah buy a 660. it is one of the best performance per dollar cards i have seen. I actually owned one at one time and it was very nice
    you will need a better psu like you said. thermaltake aint too good. get a 500w Antec, Seasonic or Corsair.
    you dont need to upgrade ram but if you want to throw another 4gb stick in there it will help with large games. if you buy exactly the same ram as you have then you can do dual channel which is better.
