Yes, I'm a noob. I want to install a new graphics card (Computer http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). I don't know what port I have in my computer or what the power output (?) is either.

I've heard the Nvidia series works at a lower temp and power output, (?) but I'm up for anything that will run Gmod above 40 fps.

Also budget is under $200, thanks so much for the help :D

That is a slim line PC and will require a Low profile gfx card like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It is about the most you dare use on the stock PSU. And about the most powerful that is available in L-P design. But it is a very strong little card. Many, many times more powerful than the on-board graphics. What resolution is your monitor?

It's 1600x900

Here is a list of cards that are low profile or low profile-ready. They are sorted in order of best rating:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

The HD 7750's are the fastest of the group. At 1600x900 resolution, you won't make much use of VRAM greater than 1GB, so there's really not much reason to spend extra for the 2GB cards. Be sure the card you choose has the correct output to match your monitor's input port. And be sure it has GDDR5 VRAM, and not the slower GDDR3.

I have a HD 7750 1GB in a budget build (Phenom II X4 840T) sitting next to me now. At 1920x1080 it can play Crysis 3 at medium settings... and it looks beautiful. Less graphically demanding games can be played at max/near max settings.
