PC bottlenecked by graphic card


I think my PC is bottlenecked by my graphic card. My specs are:

Win7 64 bit Intel Core i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67 GHz
Nvidia Geforce GTX 230

Which graphic card should I get? Thanks in advance!

  1. how big is your budget?
  2. Um yeah.

    You haven't mentioned your budget, your power supply, or your monitors resolution so nobody could possibly make any recommendation.
  3. I play at 1280x1024, but I may upgrade my monitor anytime soon.

    I'm not sure how many watts does my power supply have. I opened the pc chase and check it but only found a sticker with the code: 20042075. If it helps my pc is a Medion pc7233.

    I'm unsure about how much money should I spend, to be honest. I want something nice than doesn't get old too fast.

    Any Ideas? Thank you in advance, and sorry for my poor english: not a native speaker!
  4. could you take a picture of the sticker on the side? i cant find anything on the PSU
  5. ok, well you have a few PCI-E connectors so im guessing it's a reasonable ammount... though it's not really possible to be sure about that :P

    i cannot guarantee it will work because it dosen't list how much power you have, but based on the ammount of connections i would reccomend a GTX 660/660TI
  6. It seems like it's a 600W PSU according to Medion: http://www.medion.com/at/service/start/_product.php?msn=20042075&gid=
  7. at that low resolution i would stick with a 7770 or a 550ti
