Video Card and PSU

Hello,

I have a acer veriton 7900pro, currently running:

Windows XP
Intel Core 2 Quad Core 2.4GHz
RAM: 1gb DDR2
Video Card: 9400GT
PSU: 400 watt

I currently play Crysis on medimum settings but i'm looking to upgrade my video card and add some extra memory so I can start to play on some higher settings. And other games like Starcraft 2.

So any ideas on some possible upgrades for the Video card, would like to keep the price around or under $100.

Cheers.

    What PSU is that? Is it just an OEM acer?

    Anyway, the 5670 is quite a large upgrade for you and will work even if that PSU is a lame OEM one.

    If your PSU is decent...

  2. Yes, I believe it is a OEM, I don't know too much about computers sorry.

    But will the 5670 be a plug and play card for my pc?
  3. Well, there were PCI 9400GTs, is yours PCI or PCI-e?
  4. how do I tell the difference?

  6. You can download and use a program called CPU-z. On the motherboard tab it will tell you both the make and manufacturer of the motherboard as well as the interface slot fo graphics. You can then tell us what that tab says..
  7. Okay I found some answers:

    I/O Interface:
    Two PS/2 ports
    9-pin serial port
    25-pin parallel port
    Eight USB 2.0 ports
    Ethernet (RJ-45) port
    VGA port
    Six audio jacks

    I/O Expansion
    Two PCI slots
    PCI Express x1 slot
    PCI Express x16 slot

    And PSU is 300 watt sorry.
  8. If its 300w I would go with the 5670 I suggested.

    You have a PCI-e x16 slot so the 5670 will work perfect in there.

    Make sure you uninstall and delete your nvidia drivers before using the ATI drivers for the 5670.
