    Well that 350w psu is your bottleneck, if your psu doesn't have a 6 pin connector then i would choose a amd HD 7750
    (i don't know from what country you are but here is the link to gpu http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-hd7750dcsl1gd5 ).
  4. This card would be in the top according to 350w psu. but you should definately buy a better psu. :)

    Thank you very much for your assistance. I have checked your link and this seems to be the right one.

    Just one question: I have checked a few websites and some of the websites say that the Intel Graphics 2500 is not a card. Would it be still possible to upgrade?
  6. yes, because intel graphics 2500 is an integrated with cpu, that means graphics are created by cpu. i other words sayed cpu also is as gpu (thats why it is bad for gaming). and yes you will be able to upgrade, just plug the 7750 in to a pci x16 slot and it will run just fine :) also if i helped you enough select my post as a solution.thanks!

    Expansion slots:
    1x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16
    1x PCIe 2.0 x4
    2x PCI

    so this would be ok right?
    I will post this as a solution if this is ok.
    Thanks.
  8. yes it will work :) because your card has a pcie 3.0 witch is very good.

    Thank you so much! I am going to buy it and I am going to get it next week. I am also going to upgrade my psu to something more powerful.
  10. ok :) psu will be very useful for overclocking and more powerful parts. and if you are going to have at least 450W then i would seriously look at a better gpu like gtx 660, amd 7850 or 7870.
