Hello,
I am looking to buy a cheap and gaming card that can play games well at 1920x1080x60 resolutions, i would be happy with a 40-50 fps with fraps as i am currently dreaming to be youtube gamer (hopefully a partner too in the future).
My Budget is too tight (130$ at most) so i would i like to know what would the best buy for me.

My Specs:
i5 2300
DH61WW Mobo
450w PSU (no pcie connector)
4 GB Kington 1333mhz RAM
Windows XP Pro SP3
Dell Full HD Monitor (ST2220M)

SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
$134.99 and a $15 rebate makes the final price $119.99

This will be most likely the best your going to get for your budget. You may not be able to play at ultra high settings but you will get decent fps on most games. If you want better fps and higher settings you will have to increase your budget.

You stated in your first post you have no PCI-E connector so you will have to go for the 7750 as the best without any PCI-E power connector.

Yes we were arguing in that other thread because that Demon Slayer guy is an idiot.

Yep, 7750 is the best you'll get period if you don't have pcie connectors. inzone stated that the 6850 comes with a molex to pcie adapter though. So you could go for that but personally I don't trust those things :p 

Yeah... I wouldn't call it arguing though since we are actually trying to give a complete answer and that guy just isn't taking it well :lol:

If his slaying of demons is anything like his logic on graphics cards, he won't last long. :lol:
