Hello I have a ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. M11AD (SOCKET 1150) motherboard and I want to know what kind of graphics card I can use. I have a 300 watt power supply and my graphics card is a AMD Radeon HD 8350 1GB DDR3 at the moment. I would not mind spending $150 to $200 on the graphics card. I also would like to play modern games on medium settings at 720p. I would prefer that the graphics card is amd. Thanks in advance.

your gonna need a new psu if you decide to swap out your current gpu. bare minimum you should look at 450w but to be able to use any gpu you want 650w would be ideal.
as for what gpu you can use, anything you want as long as your psu can meet the power requirement.

you have to replace the power supply if you want a better gpu. the 300w unit wont have the amps rating needed for both a cpu and gpu. if you try you pop the power supply and may kill your rig. look on parts picker for cosair 500-650w units when they go onsale. replace the power supply first or save up and get it and a 260-270 amd gpu.

Hello I was wondering if my case the asus essentio m11 is a decent case to add a new graphics card into. I have a Intel Core i5 4440S @ 2.80 GHz and a AMD Radeon HD 8350 1GB DDR3. It want to get a graphics card around $150 to $200 and I really want to know if my case is big enough. I have a 300w power supply and I know I'm gonna get at least a 450w power supply.

the case is pretty much standard width and depth so you should be able to put any size gpu you want in it.
but dont worry to much as there are plenty of good gpu's with smaller coolers that will fit in any case you like if you dont mind paying a small premium.
