ive just bought an hp computer and i got it with the cheap GPU since i read all the cards that they had were crap and over priced here are my specs
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-860 quad-core processor [2.8GHz, 1MB L2 + 8MB shared L3 cache]
6GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM
640GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
512MB ATI Radeon HD 4350 [DVI, HDMI, VGA adapter]
Now what GPU should i get that work better than this with an hdmi port and good performance under $200
its 350W and the mother board is msi MS-7613

OH BY THE WAY it would be nice to have a gpu that'll render graphics cleanly on a 32in monitor

What is your power supply specs?

If you want to get any decent GPU, you probably need to replace the power supply since pre-built computers usually come with the cheapest and lowest quality PSUs.

What are the amps on the 12v rail?

350watts can probably handle a 5670, which draws about the same amount of power as a 4670 or 9600GT, but performs similar to a 4830 or 8800/9800GT.
It costs $100


Or you can upgrade your PSU for about $50, and buy a 5770 (performs equal to a 4870 or GTX260) for $150

A 32" monitor or a 32" HDTV? What is the native resolution of the screen?
Also are you talking about gaming, basic computing, movies? We need to know what you will be doing with the computer to make a proper recommendation.
