Upgrade Help

First of all, you guys are great. I've seen how much of a help you've been to others so I thought I would come to this community with my problem. I feel the need to upgrade, however as I am no computer tech, I don't know what would be most effective for the buck. I have 100 ish to spend and the goal is to not have to worry about system requirments while gaming. Now I don't really care what the games look like, just to run them with a respectable fps.
Here is my system:
Stock: HPE-150t
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel Core i5, 750 @ 2.67 GHz
6 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 5450 PCI

If you need more information let me know. I feel as though the RAM is the issue, but the ATI card is stock.
Not much of a budget, but I'd like to do the best I can.

Thanks Ya'll

  1. Best answer
    HD7750 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102969
    Will run on your 350watt PSU! Ram is fine.
  2. This is probably the best upgrade for you in that budget range: XFX HD-675X-ZDFC Radeon HD 6750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card $99.99

    That's not a great gaming card, but it's a lot better than that 5450.

    Edit: I stuck strictly with the $100 range (before rebate), but the 7750 is a nice choice too.
  3. Hi :)

    The rest is fine, the graphics card is rubbish.... change it for the best you can afford...

    All the best Brett :)
  4. Thanks for help!
    I know with the system the power supply might be an issue.
    Rolli, I Appreciate you looking into that. Ordering later this week!
    Thanks Guys.
  5. If I were to spend a little extra money (total between 150-175) would I get a product thats twice as good? Or so?
    Please keep in mind the power supply.
