Hey guys! I'm new here but i just needed some advice. I was thinking about getting a new graphics card, as mine is outdated, but I am not sure what my computer will support. Here's my specs:

OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (3gb of RAM)
CPU: Intel Q660 (2.4 ghz quad core)
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. (Model: Benicia)
PSU: LITEON PS-5301-08HA (300W)
Graphics Card: Nvidia 8400GS (256mb)


Thanks in advance for your help!

look at the ATI 5670

alternatives would be the Nvidia GT240 DDR5 and ATI 4670 DDR3 but both are a step below the ATI 5670. In terms of cost, the ATI 5670 is around $100, the ATI 4670 around $70 and the GT 240 in-between those two.

upgrading your PSU would open more options but you would also need to include a budget and your monitor's native resolution.

My monitors resolution is 1920x1200 and in terms of a budget, i would say at the very most i would spend 150$. I havent really thought about getting a new psu, but i have been looking into building my own computer (which at this point may be better than upgrading).
