None of the above are Gaming GPUs.

The lowest GPU I would consider a 'Gaming' GPU is the Radeon HD 6750

Your PSU can handle an HD 5770/6770 with ease - most likely an HD 6850 as well. Don't waste your money on those low-end non-gaming cards.

Please tell us how much would you like to spend in the gpu and what you´re looking to do so we can give you an idea of what you really need.

You don´t wanna buy the same card just to play at 1280x1024 than to 1080p.

Either of these would be a good choice and if you could post your budget amount then we can see what you are willing to spend on this upgrade and do remember that you get what you pay for so if you spend more you get more , if you spend less then you get less.

This would be the card to get for your computer and it will work with the psu that you have , with the other components that you have in your computer it would not make sense to go with anything higher sence you might be encountering a bottleneck. This card might not be in your budget range but I listed it anyway because it would be a great addition to your computer.

In my Country its expensive...Malaysian Ringgit. Got it? And i wonder why u even did mention my Internet connection Payment? =.= And,yeah, Expensive. My mean, a 2GB Gt 430 Is cheaper than the 1GB GT 240. I really hope i can get the GT 430,Coz it has dual fan,and will i be able to run it on XP 32 bit? And i more thing what i worry is the Size of the card,on the site it mention about the dimension of the GT 430...well that's freaks me out. ~.~

Most of You Said I Can Go With The Radeon HD6xxxx Series,i Did Some research back then and some of them said I Could not even Run HD5570 On my Mobo Because of Power source or Cable thing or Something,and still am i able to Run The HD6xxxx Series? And most of them Said the GT 430 is the best choice, And i look into the website today,and it show the Dimension of the card,this things freaks me out because the other doesn't show this,does this mean i should worry about the card size? and even do it listed Dx11,still,can i run it on Dx9? And my Budget is Around 90 Bucks. Thanks For Does who pay visit on this post and replied them.Thanks For those info and share useful links to me.

GT430, 9500GT and GT520 are not meant for gaming! Get over it. The minimum for some serious gaming are the 5770/6770/550 Ti or the 30-40$ more expensive 6850's, now that the GTX460's are gone. If you want to game - save up for 3-4 months and shell out more money.

You've said your PSU is 480 watts - your signature also says 230 watts - which is it? This is the only thing that will determine whether you need a new PSU or whether you can put a gaming graphics card into your existing system. Also, who told you the 5570 wouldn't work with your system?

480w is peak so it's not really a 480w unit. I wouldn't go over 5770/6770 (only if it has a 6pin connector) with that PSU to be honest.

Well if you are on a budget AMD is the way to go, about the cards you were thinking about I wouldn't bother trying to game with them, and even if you went with the 2gb vid card I doubt you'll be even able to use it on modern games.

Here is a performance charts on how the nvidia cards compare:

http://www.geforce.com/Hardware/GPUs/geforce-gtx-550ti/...

Which games do you want to play, that's also important on which GPU you should buy.

All the Modern Warfare Under More than 1024x768 Screen Reso High Detailed Graphics,And Most of the 2day games under more than 1024x768 Screen reso On Medium Settings And Stable frame rate. Is The GT 430 Capable showing these results? The G210 im using now can't even handle COD 4 On Auto Texture Settings and Currently 1024x768 Reso AA x2.

Thanks For The Link. I really Appreciated it. It Was really Awesome.
i saw the results of the Card i've been asking,the 9500GT,GT 240 and the GT 430. under all the card i stated above,the best is the GT 240,right? But What's the difference Between a 2gb and 1gb card which have the same Core,clock and shader memory? Just Asking...

Low end cards like the GT240 run out of steam before they can use those 1GB of memory, let alone 2GB. Hell, 2GB sometimes seem much even for an 6950 which is 5x faster than the GT240. So when chosing low end cards, pay attention to the type of the memory, not its size.
