Need a little help please.

Hi, I am in no way computer savvy. I know a little, but its just enough to get by. So I need a little help upgrading my graphics card.

This is the system I bought: (its what I could afford at the time)

If you need more info, you will have to tell me how to get it cause yeah I wouldnt have a clue.

Anywho, the question I have is, what is a good graphics card for me to buy for this computer. I need it to be able to fit and everything. The case is kinda slim...so yeah..

I am on a budget of about 100 dollars. I can go to 200 I suppose if I have to, but thats max.

I play games like Sims 2. If that gives you any idea of what i need. Thanks a lot guys. ;)

More about need please
  1. It would have to be low profile which limits your choices.
  2. Alright, well what would those choices be? :)
  3. Please I just need a little help. :/
  4. For games like the sims a 4650 should do just fine

    Ah I see , thank you so much for replying. ^^
  6. For a little more you can grab this which should be a little better.

    But for the money, the 4650 should do great as well.

    Great! Thanks!
  8. Oh, keep in mind on the 9600gt, don't know about the power requirements on the low profiles. I know the normal ones do require a power connector. So keep that in mind. If your power supply seems too weak, then definitely the 4650 as that is one it's biggest advantages.
  9. Unfortunately shadow you skipped the low profile restriction. The low profile ready cards im not sure how you get them to turn into low profile cards, the 4650 was the strongest low power card i could find and it doesnt require extra power.
  10. I see, so the 4650 would be my best bet.
