I would like to buy a graphics card for my computer (if possible as it is old computer). I only want to play games which don't require much power. I know that I should get a new computer really but I don't have a lot of money to spend at the moment. I realise that my computer won't run games very well but any suggestions would be helpful.

Computer Specs
Intel core 2 duo 1.8GHz
PCI eX16

Not sure what else you may need to know :??:

Your powersupply and budget.

I am assuming you have a low end power supply and very low on budget, so a 6570 or a 6770.

Sorry but I'm new to upgrading computers, so im not sure what you need to know about the PSU. The Maximum cotinuous output - 250w

You'll have to upgrade the psu first to get a mid-high end card.

What brand is it ? Otherwise you're stuck with something like a GT210 or GT220 i'm afraid.

What power PSU would you suggest I get?

In most cases, you'll have a slow performance because you have a slow CPU.
So my advice is to upgrade the CPU if possible, the GPU will be hold back by a slower CPU.
