Upgrading graphics card

I want to get battlefield 3 but my graphics card is lousy. It's a GT 530, anyone have any suggestions about what graphics card I should get? (My computer was pre-built and it's 3 years old)

  1. GXT 750Ti, it is fairly cheap and draws little to nothing, this being the choice as pre-built PC's generally have low wattage PSU's and are cheap, this card should will run off a cheap 300W PSU, what PSU is it? It also is a very powerful GPU for the power it consumes.
  2. gtx 760 or 770 or 750 ti
    or
    r9 270, r9 270x, r9 280x

    it all comes down to your budget and company preference
  3. I would throw my hat in with the people that suggest the 750Ti and then suggest the MSI GAMING version of that, I have 2 and they stay very cool and very quiet ( the Twin Frozr coolers are by far the best around).

    if he chooses 750ti then he should buy the one from evga...the reasons is that it is better performing and has a display port
  5. My PSU is only 220w is it possible to run the Gtx 750i also, I checked the gtx 750i and it specs says it is double-slot but the gt 530 is single slot , will the gtx 750i fit?

    So I can buy the gtx 750i then?
  8. you can, but with a 220W PSU, your cutting it too close. Suggest buying a new PSU.

    A 300W PSU is fine right?

    yes, the quality does help but a cheap PSU can cut it, suggest something that is not too cheap.
