I am looking to replace my Nvidia 8400GS with something with a little more kick. And it can not be more than $60.00

(I have a 350w PSU and a display with 1440x900 and PCI Express 16X slot and i do not care weather the card is ATI or Nvidia)

So, What Card Should I Get?

Here are some PCI Express 16 cards:

A Good PCI card:

2nd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $74.99 + 6.99 for shipping sorry man old PCI cards are alot of money!

A Good AGP card:

3rd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $69.99 + Free shipping!

The first card is the best one!

A 5450 is not a gaming card. Go with at least a Radeon 4650 or nVidia 9500GT. The card builderbobftw recommended is about as good as you will get without increasing your budget.

Yep.
If you don't believe us, check out the graphics card hierarchy.
The 9500gt ddr2 is a tier lower than the 4650.

Right, But no one gives a crap about what you think, mister "GTX 260>5870".

Also, the GTX 260>5870 the same way Any of the cards you posted>4650.

(Anywhere near the price range, of course the GTX 295>4650)

The HD4650 is a better card than any of the ones posted by our latest troll ihol.

JE_D stick with the recommendation you picked as best answer, it's better than the other posted.

There are better deals out there if you're familiar with NCIX in Vancouver (was there on Saturday) and Canada Computers in Toronto and a few other places.

The HD4650 is a competent card, and far better than the GF9500 and the GT220 (which is usually the same as the slow GF9500 if it's not superclocked which still keeps it below the HD46xx series when it is).

Thanks, Actually there is a Canada computers in Brampton (it is like 10 Min From my house) and they have the HD4650
But they also have the HD4670 for 20$ More, is it worth it?

But any more and you're getting close to the range of the very fast (90$-80$)

GTS 250 1gb, and 4850 512mb

Honestly, if you want a huge gaming boost, go for this:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produ [...] -_-Product

I would recomned just bucking up for this, very fast card.


I think I will go with the 4650\4670
Depending on how much it is at the Canada Computers Store.

The GTS 250 1GB/4850 512 MB is just to much :cry:  over budget :cry:
