I have a computer thats couple years old and would like to upgrade the video card. Whats the best video card I can upgrade too with a :
Motherboard : AMD 780L w/ 8 GB of DDR3 1 PCI 2.0 x 16 card slot with a 450w power supply. The video card that is in it right now is a GeForce GT 220, 1GB GDDR3 128-bit
I can't really afford to upgrade my whole computer and am looking for suggestions on video cards that are better than whats in it now. Thanks for any help!

    The Geforce GTX 660 and AMD Radeon HD 7870 both fit into the top end of your budget and work with your system. Both would make great upgrades to your pc.

    The Geforce GTX 660 requires a 450 Watt power supply so you will squeeze by. The 7870 requires a 500 Watt psu but you might be able to slip by, although I don't recomend that.

    What PSU do you have?
