  1. what i can get the best option
  2. Okay, for your system, i wouldn't spent more than 9800GT...
    What about your monitor and PSU?
  3. I'd go with an HD5570, or an HD5670. Either card will probably be bottlenecked, but that's about as cheap as you get. You're over-due for a processor upgrade.

    psu is 500w, and my monitor is old compaq fp 5315, but i gonna buy now one soon. thanks
  5. You don't need a new PSU, and I wouldn't get a new monitor until you get a new processor/mobo/RAM
  6. Big question, around how much are you willing to spend (in US Dollars to make things a bit easier)?
  7. If you are getting a full HD monitor (reso 1900 X 1200 or therebouts), your system will be hopelessly inadequate for gaming, even for watching HD video. If you HAVE to stick to your current system, get a lower reso monitor.

    from where i have to know what processor/mobo/ram i need to buy, i dont need super computer, i just need beter graphics. thank you.
  10. The problem is that you'll be heavily limited to what card you can buy because your processor isn't that good.

    An mATX mobo + Athlon II x2 250 / 2GB DDR2 will cost ~$160. Then you can get a card for ~$100 (HD4850/HD5670) or $150 (HD5770).
  11. Newegg shellshocker deal today only: gt240 for $40

  12. Go for the 5670, or 4670.
