Hello, Im on a very low budget but I need a new graphics card. I know my power supply is not very good, but cannot afford to upgrade. Need recommendation on the best graphics card that would work with my supply:

The PSU I have is a Winpower ATX 700L. I have had a look at the labelling on the PSU itself and it says the following:

+5v 35A MAX

+3.3v 35A MAX

+12V1 15A MAX

+12V2 19A MAX

-12V 0.3A MAX

+5V/SB 2.0 MAX

Second hand GTX460 - Boom headshot.

Such wonderful wonderful cards - Best revision of the 4 series - so good infact Nvidia used them to make the 560ti - a worthy and even more awesome sucessor.

I would agree, the GTX 460 1GB model would be a great fit unless you have the $$$ to buy a GTX 560Ti. Your power supply should be able to handle either...

Asus ATI 6770 or Asus Nvidia 550ti i think these are close to price and they also the u some peace in mind that they have not been overclocked to the edge if life. If u can push Asus 560ti is a sick card tho. What ever u choose good luck in finding ur new card.

That Winpower PSU "might" handle a GTX460, but I wouldn't attach anything more demanding to it; a HD6770 would be safer. I think that might be from the same OEM Apevia uses, and their PSUs are junk.
