I bought this computer a year ago, it works very well, and now i want to buy a new graphic card for gaming (about 120$).
But i'm a noob at the hardware stuff
I have my eyes on the hd 5670 but i'm not should if it worked or not (if not could you recommend me some other GPU about as good as it like GT 240, Geforce 9600, etc...)
You can find the hardware info at the specification bar at http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E168... (haven't touched anything since got it )
Please leave some advices about the GPU and brands for me
Hah, it's upside down. Well, the motherboard that is. You may be able to get away with using a 5670, but with a wimpy PSU you risk blowing out components if you actually manage to put this under heavy load. Then again it's not a monster machine so it could be just fine.
If you are going to get a new PSU then you may as well get a more powerful Radeon 4850 or nvidia GTS 250. The main reason to get a 5670 is since it's low power and heat after all . Even though the 4850 and GTS 250 are not DX11 cards, they are faster than the 5670 and the 5670 is just a little too slow to use DX11 anyway.
The Cooler Master PSU is decent enough (not great but not crap either) and will be more than enough for your computer and a 4850. It's hard to do better for the price. Alternatively if you are next to a CompUSA I believe they have their Ultra LS PSUs on sale right now which are not bad.
