  1. Im guessing your in the $150 range budget....
    I Highly recommended this video card:

    BUT, if you cant increase your price a bit like $30(Do rebate), get this at around $190 BUT you only need 2GB VRAM for 1920x1080 resolution and higher...

  2. What is your current power supply brand and model? A link would be nice too.

    It makes no sense to buy a video card that that the PSU cannot handle.
  3. Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D
    But im thinking about upgrading
  4. why do you upgrade to a 5xxx series? go to a newer one, 6xxx series

    OR

    Get this for a faster one

    Make sure you have 700W+ psu
  5. I agree with jag
    if you have a 6 pin on the PSU I would look at the 6850
    5830 power to performance is bad.
    6850 is a much better card.

    Also for 209 before MIR you can do better than a 2GB 6870.
  6. Well What power supply should i go with ?
    Sorry i know a jump im just not that good with all this also this is the board im using

  7. List your budget, if you can get at least $300 for both Video Card and PSU, it's going to be good...
    VC: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130652
    PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371049
    $312
  8. Yeah 300 to 350 is a nice budget for me
  9. If you give the PSU model or specs maybe you cn spend all the mnney on the GPU
  10. You don't need a $120 750w psu for a single card. Or even a mid-range crossfire/sli setup (see my sig). For $300 (including psu), I'd be looking at a 6950 or 560ti.

    6950:

    psu:

    I spent about 2 minutes searching, so you may be able to find better deals, but this will perform a lot better than a gts550. Don't get me wrong, the psu is very important, but there are quality units in the $50-60 range. There's no need to overspend and downgrade your gpu. And you can probably still crossfire 6950s on that power supply.
