Alright, so as a gamer I mostly play first person shooters which my computer can handle fine (averages about 30 fps). However when I try and record in-game with fraps the fps drops to about 10-15 fps and feels very laggy. So my question is what is a good graphics card that my computer can handle and will boost performance.

Specs:

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 235e 2.7 GHz
RAM: 6.00 GB DDR2 800
Chipset: NForce 430 MCP61
Graphics: GeForce 6150SE
Hard Drive: 750 GB SATA 3.0 Gbps
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

My budget is up to $100 but preferably $75>

Any help would be greatly appreciated (:

5670

the two sapphires have the best bang for the buck. (the $70 HIS uses ddr3)

that should be a huge upgrade from what you have now. However, I recommend it on the assumption that you have a 300 w psu. you should really open up your case and try to find the wattage of your psu, and if you can, how many amps it has on the 12v rail. the 5670 should be fine on most 300w generic psu's, and some 250's if you're lucky.
