I need help choosing a graphics card for my older computer.

Hi everyone!

Recently the graphics card on my older computer stopped working. I don't want to replace it as I use it only for browsing the web and watching movies and it's still good at that. My motherboard is MSI's 870-C45 and the processor is AMD PhenomII X4 960T. What do you think is the appropriate graphics card here? I need it only for basic computer, I could even buy a used one. Thank you in advance!

    What was the previous one. Since it's basic computing a gt 730 should do but if you go used you have an insane amount of cheap options.
  2. any card will do the job. just don't pick those with high power consumption

    I don't have to worry about compatibility? For example, the GT 720 will work with the motherboard?
  4. sure, there is no problem with that card.
