I did some research and found out that I can still add a graphic card even tough there should not be enuff power for it.
I browsed trough some forum and saw some pple using graphic card on very low power supply and it worked fine all the time.
Here is my question.
I would liek to know what would be the best graphic card for me to buy.
It has to have a low power consuption and it has to be low profile.
I have a low budget of under 100$
I do not really know where I will buy it but my credit card is frozen for some reason ( I have no fuckaing idea why it just stopped working all of a sudden).I will probably buy it at futureshop or bestbuy or Lasource or a small computer shop like dantech or whatever. I live in montreal.
I know I cant get far with this low budget but I am a 20 years old poor gamer and I would like to have the best of that 100$ for my card to play starcraft 2, some mmorpg etc...
I have a 2nd computer with a 8600 gt and I find that it's good enough.I can play starcraft 2 at med quality with med resolution and I have high FPS.
