my x800xt seems to have just died on me, so i'm looking to upgrade, but don't really know much about graphics cards.

pc specs are:
amd athlon 64 4000+
2gb ram
silent x 350w psu (included with my barebones shuttle xpc, so i dont think upgrading this is an option.. and i'm not sure of the amps per rail either, i tried to look this up but can't really find info on it)

i'm not sure what the best card i can upgrade to is, since i think my power supply is kinda limiting my choices, but im looking for the best that it can handle reliably. does anyone have any advice for me? thanks

First I Have A Question.... What Speed Is Your RAM?
Second Question.... What Is Your Motherboard AGP Or PCI-E?

7600 gt is the best choice for you right now.

hm, is that really the top option for a 350w psu limit?

You might be able to go a little higher, but I wouldn't risk it. The 7600GT is a fine card for its price anyway.

Try this calculator to see if you can go any higher with your current components.
