I need advise on new graphic card, my current system specs:

CPU: E8400 3.0GHz
Monitor: Dell U2311H (23")
Motherboard: ASUS P5k SE
RAM: 4GB
Graphic Display: Nvidia 9800GT

  1. gtx 460 is best option there.
  2. I would not buy a GTX470. Your PSU is sufficient for any single GPU. In your place, I would probably get a GTX560 or GTX560Ti, or if my budget were tight, a HD6870.
  3. gtx 460 is being phased out by nvidia. current gtx 460 on sale has two versions, a 192 bit memory bus version and a 256 bit memory bus version. a radeon hd 6870 is a better choice considering the 256 bit one's higher price. if you must get an nvidia card, then get a gtx 560ti 1gb gddr5. examples (based on price):
    192 bit gtx 460 $150

  5. Thanks alot for your replies guys, I will check and decide which to get. The GTX 560Ti sounds very good, I am a heavy gamer, played Aion Online. Anyone plays this game? and using this GTX 560Ti, is it working smoothly?

    I still have some problem with my system right now, It freezes pretty often, I am not sure what is the problem. I dont have much knowledge in computer. My system suddenly just freezes up, I can't move my cursor or do anything, even using the restarting button won't work, the system will not boot up, it locks and ask to insert system disc or such. I can only shut it down by holding the Power Button long until it's down and restart.

    I am pretty sure it's not a software issue because I just formatted my system and this issue still happens. I am running windows 7 32bit.

    Any idea on this, please help... would be very grateful.

    I also want to know if my ASUS Motherboard P5k SE supports Memory DDR3, I am currently using DDR2 4GB (2GBx2), I am not sure if this freezing problem is coming from my RAM, CPU or anything else. My PSU is new and I have this freezing issue even before changing the PSU so I don't think PSU is the problem.

    Will be waiting for your help,

    Thanks,

    Sounds like a HDD issue.

    looks like your mobo supports ddr 2 rams only.
