    If its nameplate looks like this: http://data.stuartconnections.com/object/image?p=7444&i=2
    ...it is strong enough to handle the GTX 750/750 Ti. That would be the fastest card available for a PSU of that size.

    Is this for gaming? If so, what is your monitor's resolution?

    Yea its that exact one! And its 1350 x 800
    Hdmi compatible
  5. Then that would be the way to go. But there is one caveat... that is a really new card, and your MB is probably really old. There may be a chance that the GTX 750 Ti (and any modern card) would need the MB BIOS to be updated to recognize the card. Somewhat rare, but it happens. I doubt that you can get a BIOS update anymore for your old board. So you will be taking a slight chance.

    Btw, I never saw a 1350x800 resolution monitor. What is it?

    oh ok but like what would be something that would work well with the pc. like im looking into going to best buy or another technology store and see around seeing which one i would like but idk what would be good for it like if it should be 2gb ddr3 or 1gb ddr5 etc. like to base my searches to that one.
    and its actually a tv i have two of them that i got for an offer and i use the other one for my ps4 and so i never really thought of buying a monitor since its worked well for me

    GDDR5 is much faster VRAM than GDDR3. At that resolution and performance level, don't waste you money on going over 1GB of VRAM unless it happens to come with a card that is a great price. You'll never use the full 1GB. Another spec to pay attention to is memory bus width. 64 bit, 128 bit, 256 bit, etc. The higher the number the faster the memory will interface with the card's processor.

    Just be sure the place you buy from accepts returns in case the old MB doesn't recognize the card.
