Looking to replace my old Nvidia GT220

PSU: 350 W
Mobo: Asus M2N68-AM Plus
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250
RAM: 4GB (2 x 2GB)
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Native Res: 1600 x 900

I would very much prefer to avoid replacing the PSU, if possible. However, I do understand that 350 is quite light and I may not have much choice.

The most graphically intense games I play are Diablo 3 and Simcity 5. Obviously, as I've been using a GT220 I haven't been running these at terribly high settings (medium-low), and DX11 stuff is beyond it anyway. I don't feel any pressing need to be able to run things on Ultra with a rig of this overall "power", but a solid medium would do just fine.

The last generation I'm at all familiar with is the 400 series, and I'm just a little overwhelmed right now trying to figure out what's what in these newer cards and what wouldn't be more card than my system could really utilize.

Suggestions to point me in the right direction appreciated!

    U could go for HD 7750, it's the fastest gfx without using another 6-pin PCI-E conductor, and GDDR5 version performs better. GT 640 is even beaten by 7750
  2. Thank you very much, those two names gave me a good jumping off point for looking about and comparing cards of similar power to the GTS450 which I'm familiar with but which draw far less power and at the sort of sub $110 prices I'm looking for. Very helpful :)
