But before you purchase anything, is Quality Quiet the PSU brand?


No, the full name is Quality Quiet 500 Watt ATX Power Supply w/Large Fan so I do not know the brand unfortunately.

The 5770 is an old card, so is the GTX 460.

As price seems to be the major concern I'd advise you to shop techbargains.com. Newegg and Tigerdirect and strike when you find the right card. You can often find deals at these sites. One note, I found a bargain GFX 470 at Ebay for $162 (shipping included).

I did some research and I found a pretty good car at 105$ with a 30$ rebate (thus making it 75) which is precisely what I need. The problem is that it uses a PCI-e x16 2.1 interface which may be incompatible with the 2.0 PCI-e x16 interface that the motherboard has (I have no idea if compatible). It is the
XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 card ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... )

*EDIT* nm, it's sold out :(  . I will check on ebay*

2.1 will work in a 2.0 port. It is backwards compatible.

Keep in mind, if you go ATI/AMD, you'll need to get rid of the NVidia drivers for the onboard GPU.
