    First off a 400 dollar budget is actually a bit much for that machine, as there would be several bottlenecks. I would not recommend a card that cost more then 100 because you would honestly be held back by other components. Also if your adamant about spending that much on a GPU make sure your power supply is up to par to handle it or you could just have an expensive paper weight.

    My recommendation is

    and pocketing the other 300 to work on making a bit newer of a machine.

    Thanks so much, I really appreciate your response..But do you think that my processor is gonna work compatibly with the new VCARD that you recommend, I mean, it won't be a confliction between processor and new vcard especially, my processor is quite old. thanks again
  3. There should be no incompatibilities although as I said make sure your PSU is up to par. I'd recommend at least a 450 watt.
  4. Any card will work with that board, but as the other poster said $400 is too much.
    I would suggest something like a Radeon 7700. Anything more will bottleneck too much to be worthwhile in many games/programsw


    With $400 you could do a full GPU/CPU/mobo upgrade though

    Whats your PSU?

    PSU/ 1000 w .. Now I can see that $400 is too much for Vcard but in the same time it's not good enough to upgrade a whole PC. So I'm tryin to collect piece by piece according to the budget that I have now. So I wanna a Vcard that allows me to run games in the current system till the next month ,so i can be able to pickup another component and so on
    Thanks a lot
  6. In that case I would wait until at least October before even buying a new GPU as that's when radeon will be launching their new 9 series of GPUs which should perform substantially better then the current lineup and price drops should follow for the current lineup. There is also rumor of Nvidia releasing the 8 series in Q1 of 2014 although that's a ways away if you can't wait. If you really feel however that you can't wait any longer I recommend this:
