More about which graphics card budget
  1. According to this;

    Your motherboard does not actually have a PCI-E x1 slot. It has a PCI-E x16 slot and two PCI slots. This is a good thing as most video cards are PCI-E x16.
    What will the card be used for? Is it for general use and video or will you be gaming? If so then what resolution?
  2. thanks for the reply

    i am going to use it for light gaming at 1280x1024 , little AA and mid-high details and texture

    i would like one which is silent..
  3. A gts 450 or a 5670. I suggest that you go for a cheap 5750 or 5770 and never look back. They will run on your psu but it will be pushing it knowing that what most people is cheaper than a ordered out pizza and very poor quality.
  4. Yeah, what is the brand/model of the power supply?
  5. brand is supercomp... a local one i guess...

    i dont know much about PSUs , so I will check it out, and then tell you guys info as you ask for it
