Hi there, Last year i´ve "upgraded" my Integrated HD2000 to a HD 6570, the best thing i can afford in my country, but i maybe able to upgrade sooner or later, wich GPU will be a nice upgrade and that will fit my PSU without changing it
My other specs
Mainboard http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_...
8gb RAM
750gb HDD

Stick with the lower-end GPU on that PSU. A 600W power supply with only 26A on the 12V rail is reflective of an older design. You really don't have a lot to work with. I wouldn't recommend running expensive components on a generic supply of that nature.

Replace the PSU as soon as you can before you start considering a new GPU.

Any good psu replacement? How much watts and 12v rail?(btw newegg/amazon is out of the question,the taxes here make it harder to get anything from there)

If you can find something XFX, Seasonic, or Corsair at 500W or more, you'll be in a good position for a decent GPU upgrade in the future. Rosewill Capstone models are also good PSUs to look for.

This depends on how the prices are where you are. In the US, a Radeon 7770 or a R7 250X are in your price range. Both are the same card really, the 250X is a newer name.

You should be able to run both cards easily even on a power supply like yours.
