    GT 220


    GT 240


    ATI HD 5570


    ATI HD 5670
  2. I'd buy 2 more Gigs or RAM if you want to game, and stick a HD 5570 or 5770 in there.
  3. thanks dude for a quick reply..but would they all play crysis2 at decent FPS??
  4. Yeah, they should be able to Max Crysis 2 @ 30 or more fps.

    thanks dude.but there is another problem.I am sorry to say but i am a really indecisive kind of person so please tell me about only one card(i mean one) which would be the best in 100 bucks..plus i forgot one thing.I have HP S1932 LCd which only has VGA interface.so that too need consideration i think.. :D
  6. For an HD5750 I would go with this one:

    For a GTS450 this one.

    Either is a great choice. Just depends on if you like Nvidia or AMD/ATI. I would pick the GTS450 myself.
  7. GTS 450 is cheaper, so would better fit your budget, and it runs better than the 5750.

    Here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cS6HBGbHCiI&feature=related Is some gameplay from the GTS 450
  8. yeah if I were the OP id go with a gts 450 it will run nicely at moderate resolution and settings
  9. thank you all guys for your support.....so i should go with gts 450....right...?
  10. sorry i forgot my current PSU is 350W..is this enough...??
  11. I believe the GTS 450 requires a 450 -500w PSU.. someone correct me if I'm wrong
  12. if it's a quality 350 watt unit it should handle it but I would feel better with 400w unit. Nvidia recommends 400 watts but that is a 400w generic. A quality 350w unit will run it.
