  1. 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=N82E16814127592

    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:
  2. If ya thinking of a future monitor upgrade to 1920 x 1200, I'd suggest upping the budget to $220 and getting a factory OC'd 560 Ti w/ improved cooler.

    $220 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130651

    Otherwise the 460 or 6850
  3. 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!
  4. With a $200 budget, and needing PSU+GPU, I'd probably choose:
    Antec EA-500D: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371035 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.
  5. Are these going to let me play witcher on ultra smoothly? Or is that out of reach with my budget
