March 7, 2012 5:15:50 PM

BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: USD $0-100) Before Rebates

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming BF3 (at least Medium settings), skyrim, Sims 3 (with expansions) HD movie viewing, mild AutoDesk Inventor 2011 (300 parts or less assemblies).

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Asus nVidia GeForce 210, Antec EarthWatts 380W

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: AMD Phenom II X4 3.0GHz (non-BE) cheap BioStar mobo, 4GB DDR3 RAM, Win 7 Ultimate OS

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States

PARTS PREFERENCES: any good brand

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: (forgot, AOC 24" monitor)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Needs HDMI or come with mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter will not use DVI to HDMI or VGA to HDMI. I don't need to run games on high or ultimate settings. I can over clock if I can get a good card. I don't want to replace my PSU and newegg's PSU calculator said that 440GT/Radeon HD 6670 or under should work fine, anything over is pushing it. I have used nividia cards for a long time and liked them, but recently their drivers are a HUGE pain to update. I wouldn't mind switching to AMD gpu's. Here are some considerations:

I can easily over-clock these cards (with MSI afterburner) and some have comments on being stable after OCing. The ASUS and MSI are pretty much the same, the MSI is cheaper with a less core-clock which might be worth it if I can OC to over the ASUS which is probably possible. Thanks for help!!

Spend an extra $17.00 and pick up the 7750. At $109 they are actually a solid product. Especially with how cool they run and how little power they sip with almost no noise. I just bought my 2nd one today I like it that much.

I second that, they beat the performance of a 550ti for a lower price and is much more energy efficient

Would the 7750 work with a 380W PSU with good enough head room?

It has a TDP of 95 watts versus the 6670 with a TDP of 65 watts. I'm sure it will

For a system using a single Radeon HD 7750 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 400 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 20 Amps or greater.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.

The Antec EarthWatts 380 Watt (EA 380), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 27 Amps and with one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single Radeon HD 7750.

My actual power decreased going from the 5670 to the 7750 (via kill a watt). It runs about 40% faster and about 5 degrees cooler.

I'm personaly running a 6870 with a 350W PSU without a problem. Althought i would not try to pull anything more from than PSU, a 7750 will run just fine on a 380W psu.

It would be a waste of money, your ram and CPU would be a bottleneck for your graphic card.
