220W Slimeline PC Video Card

Hey guys I currently have an ATi Radeon HD 4550 running at 1440 x 900. I would like to upgrade to something a bit better, so I can run some newer games that are coming out like RIFT, and Guild Wars 2.

I'm wondering what would be the best graphics card to get without getting a new PSU ( I have a 220W PSU)

This is what it currently says on my PSU

What are some video cards that I can upgrade to from a 4550?

Thanks guys.

Best solution

Not really unless you tell us your full specs like what make and model of pc.
Sounds like you have a pre-built from Dell/HP etc.
You'll have to replace the psu imho.

since you machine is pre-built by acer then your mobo must be OEM mobo. i think it is better for you to get new PSU if you want to upgrade your graphic card. normally OEM machine like yours was design with only IGP in mind which does not need too much power so that's why they only put 220w PSU into your machine. what resolution you currently playing at?
