Hi

No expert myself but from looking through a few sites your best bet i reckon is :-

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

only prob might be it needs a good (corsair , antec )500watt psu minimum but youll need to find out spec of what you already have.

Cheers Kev :sol:

Agree with JackNaylor about stretching your budget and going for a better card. Also consider HD 6950 1GB from team red. It should be comparably priced.

Your next upgrade should be a monitor! Going from 1600x900 to 1920x1200 is such a leap in quality of life. Cheers!

With a $200 budget, and needing PSU+GPU, I'd probably choose:
Antec EA-500D: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for $60 shipped, and most of the GTX460 (even some 1GB models) are less than $140 if you play the rebate game and win; it's your choice who you think most likely to pay off on that gamble.

Are these going to let me play witcher on ultra smoothly? Or is that out of reach with my budget
