What is the best graphics card for a gamer who does not want to update the processor or entire computer. I currently have a radeon 8500. More about : update dell 8400 computer graphics card ninelivesproductions May 21, 2010 1:00:40 AM I need to know how much you're willing to spend, and how many watts your PSU can supply. Best solution ninelivesproductions May 21, 2010 1:02:07 AM Heres a $57 XFX Radeon 4650, a very significant upgrade from your old 8500. If you're willing to spend more or less, again just let me know. Usually dells come with either 400-500 watt PSUs, so You are okay as the minimum is 400watts for this card: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
