What Graphics Card should I use?

  1. What is your power supply? That's not a bad card, and probably a good match for your i3, you just need a reliable PSU with the wattage/amperage for it.
  2. I haven't done that yet or a case but I wanted to do the case last and I needed to have all the other parts in order to figure out my power supply. Do you have any suggestions?

    400-500 watts from a good power supply would be more than enough, this one gets suggested on Tom's a lot:
