Hello. I am looking to upgrade my video card so i can run games with better performance on my computer. The video card that came with my computer is the Nvidia Geforce 8550 GT, which i heard is pretty ancient now. My knowledge of computers is really low, but I have been doing research to know the little that I know now. The computer I have is this one:

I'm just looking for a video card that is compatible with what I have. I'm willing to spend anywhere between $100 to $200 on anything that is better. Please Help !!

I also forgot to add my screen resolution which is 1680 x 1050, if that makes an impact on a decision.

Best way to go actually is to upgrade yor psu to. 300W isn't enough for a good upgrade.

You can have for 200 $ a new psu and gpu. Where do you buy from ?

for a 300 watt power supply you are being really limited in what you can get.

the best card you can get would have to be a 6670.

if you are willing to upgrade your psu.

you can spend $50 on the psu for one with more wattage and get a 6850 for $150.
