Hi all!

I'm new of this community, and I need an help with the choosing of a new Graphic Card for my PC. I don't have a big budget, so I can spend at maximum 80$. Here are my pc configs:

- MB: ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA
- CPU: DualCore Intel Pentium E5200, 1200 MHz (6 x 200)
- RAM: 2 GB
- HDD: Hitachi HDT721010SLA360 ATA Device 1TB
- Actual Graphic Card: ATI Radeon X1550 512 MB

If you need any other info on my PC that could help you in your choice, let me know and I'll tell you.


Thanks so much to help me =)

What PSU?

Depending on your PSU, you could grab a 9800GT/GTX for ~$80-85 these days.

If the PSU can't handle it, you'll probably will need to get a 4670 or the 9600GT with out the PCIe 6 pin (IIRC, it was an ASUS "Green" 9600GT).

"230 V and 60/50 Hz" I read near the plug...

You need to open the case and look at the PSU from the side. We're most interested in Brand, Wattage, and Amperage

You'll need to give us the Amperage on the 12-volt rail.

If your PSU is under 350Watts, get an HD5670. Best card for that type of PSU.

And what can you tell me about the HD5670? Is it as powerful as this?

To be safe what brand and model is your psu, can't just throw any thing in there knowing that most people end up buying generic units due to lack of money.
