I am at a 60$ budget and was going to get a 9600 off of ebay or something close to that so I can get rid of my 8600gt which will be used to buy a new power supply but if I can power a 9600gt/gso card off of my 400watt power supply in the mean time ill do that then sell my 8600GT on craigslist or something.

Anyways this is my power supply

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I was wondering what cards I can power on that?

My System Specs

Gigabye Motherboard M-ATX MA785GM-US2H
Silverstone 400 Watt Power Supply
500GB WD Caviar Black
AMD Rana 425 2.7ghz Tri-core
3GB of Memory. 1 2GB Stick and a 1GB stick in unganged mode at 800MHZ. PC6400

I am getting tired of my 8600GT.

Best solution

a c 376 U Graphics card

Silverstone is a good brand and that PSU can easily handle a 9600GT or even better cards. There is no need to replace it.

OK Thanks, So would a 9600GT be the best I could find in a 60$ price range that my PSU can handle? Or would there be better.

If you are going used you may be able to find a 9800GT for around that price. Or 8800GT, they are the same card. Your PSU can probably even handle an HD4850 which would be even better.

Is an 8800GTS better than a 9600GT?

It depends on which one. The 512mb version is significantly better, the 640mb one is probably a lil weaker and 320mb even more so.

OK, I lost a bid for an 8800GTS on ebay. I will try the sale section here then and wait and see if I get a reply on the 8800GTS 512MB I emailed a person about.

Is 50$ Good for an 8800GT with 512MB memory?

It's not bad. It's better than the 9600GT.
No luck on an HD4850? Other possibilities are the HD4830 and HD4770.

I got an 8800GT for 45$ on ebay. I hope it runs on my power supply like you guys say, Also ATI is somewhat out of the question as I plan on experimenting with Linux in the future.

That's a good deal. It should be fine on that PSU. Just make suer the person you are buying it from has good feedback.

They have 100% feedback and have sold around 100 items. Also checked the size of my case, though it being a compaq micro-atx case the HD bays do not extend down all the way so there is plenty of room to fit even a 13 inch card into the case if need be. I cannot wait till it arrives :)  I have been meaning to get off this 8600GT.
