I have an HP pc with a 920 intel pentium d processor, 2GB of memory, 300GB hard drive, and currently an nvidia geforce 6200SE graphics card. I am looking to replace this with a graphics card from the nvidia geforce gtx 200 series, maybe the 275. Im a gamer so id like to get something to support that but nothing really over $280. Can my computer use the 200 series cards and if it can which one would be best for my money? Ive done some research and as far as I can tell it can support them but I cant tell much difference between the 260, 275, 280, etc besides the price. Also, Im not sure what power supply i have or anything like that, is that important as well?
Hi there, can't really help you out because I'm not to clued in myself. One thing I do know, your power supply is very important, and the guys who know stuff will probably need to know what your power supply is before helping you out.
A total of 384USD. a phenom x3 720 2.83ghz, with a asus crosfireX motherboard( so u can add another extra graphics card in future if u need more performance), a 650W antec psu(in case u crossfire ur gfx in future) and a powercooler 4850.
I will suggest sell ur current mobo processor psu and add something with ur 285USD budget and get this thing. not only u will be playing games smoothly but also a bit future proofing.
