Hey, I was wondering if anyone would advise me on a decent graphics card to get. My system specs are:

CPU: Intel Pentium E5700 (@3Ghz)
PSU: 400w
RAM: 4gb DDR2 (@332Mhz)
HDD: Seagate 500gb
OS: Win7 Home Premium 64bit
My monitor is 1080p and Im not sure of a budget yet.
Cheers for any help.
Peace and love.

Here's the max that you could get without causing a bottleneck as well as for good fps with a 1080p monitor.

MSI Cyclone 6850

Although to get a card like that you might have to upgrade your PSU,pending what you have now.

How many amps are on the +12v rail(s)?

What is the make/model of your 400watt PSU?

Thanks for the speedy reply :D  The PSU is seriously cheap I think the brand is ColdCase pr something like that. On the side of the PSU it says 18 amps underneath the +12v. Do you know a good graphics card I could get without upgrading the PSU?

You could get something like this.

Asus 6670

It's low power usage would allow you to use your current PSU.Although if you have the money I would reccomend getting the 6850 and a new PSU.You might find it hard to play games at your full 1080p resolution with the 6670.

I think I'll go for a 6670 or a 450 cause I'm on a budget. Thanks for your help :)

I would stay away from the GTS450.It consumes about 30 watts more and with your PSU only providing 200watts you want to save as much power as possible.
