Hey guys, I am new to this whole pc gaming community and I have no financial means to buy a new, wonderfully powerful gaming pc, so im working with what I have. Currently I am running on:
Windows 7 Ultimate
AMD Athlon 7550 Dual Core 2.5 GHZ (No OC)
4 gbs of ram
128 gb ssd

Ideally I wanna play Diablo 3 and DarkSiders 2 on high settings. Considering my financial situation and my elderly computer. What video card should i get that will fit my criteria? (budget)

    ^+1. You should also look at the Radeon 7750, which doesn't need a power connector, so if you don't have one, you won't have to get a new PSU.
  4. Sorry about that. And i'm looking from 50-100. If it cant play 1080p no prob I just want to be versatile with games and play them (enjoyably). Thanks guys

    a gtx 550ti is a pretty decent card but u cannot expect to play on ultra settings with 1080p resolution..
    And a gtx 550ti has its max TDP rated at 116 watt..
    So u'll definitely need a powerful PSU to feed it..
    Well it is surely the best for your budget but including a PSU will throw your budget out of your prescribed range...
    Best of luck..!!

  7. Thanks a lot guys. Guess i just gotta save up more to get the card and PSU.
  8. Do that, and new series of Radeon cards should be coming out in dec/jan, so you might want to look into that. From the looks of it, they are not going to overprice their cards on release like last time.
