  1. Your link goes to nothing. Also going to have to know the rest of the parts in your computer in order to recommend anything.
  2. Anything at or above a R9 270 AMD or 750 Ti Nvidia should do just fine for league and dual monitors. And yeah considering you have a PSU that can handle it.

  4. Yeah I can pretty much guarantee that the PSU in it will not suffice to stick a higher end card in it. Proprietary PSUs usually are not the best of quality. It would at least be a risk if you did put a 270 or 750 Ti in it.

    My budget is only $100-$120 :(
    cant afford those
  6. Well, if you wanna see for sure what the PSU is pushing out in terms of wattage and 12V amperage, you could look at the specs on the PSU to see what it runs. There should be a wattage rating and a 12V rail amperage rating on the label. Maybe then we could find something thats within your budget and not be as big of a risk.

    is there anything cheaper you can recommend or is that the only choice?
  10. The 750 is the best GPU you can get for lower end PSUs. Other weaker options are the 7750, 6670, 5670, etc.
