Also what games you want to play, what settings, what monitor resolution, what budget.

To get started, you might want to take a look at In addition to a lot of information about video cards, they have a page about defining what you want and need in a system - your special features and system requirements.

You might also start by looking at the THG review of best cards for different budget levels:

Once you have a better idea, people here can help you narrow it down further, make sure it works with your system, and maybe even recommend some good deals.

we need more info than that mate, games don't solemnly run based on your graphic card.
CPU speed ? - and how many cores
RAM ? how much, and what frequency?
Hard drives (with focus on the RPM)
and like Rockyjohn said, what games, is it pacman or crysis 2?
what budget do you have? 10$ 500$ ? "not too expensive" is based on where you're from
also, most graphic cards nowadays (the good ones) needs 6pin-8pin power plugins (or mine that need 2x6pins each), so you might want to check if your power supply has that as well.

If you need a card that costs half of what the GS 450 costs, you are essentially talking about non-gaming video cards. I suggest you look at the on the page for non-gaming video cards at the site I linked above. It has makes and models at different price levels.
