Let me know what you think of these cards.

The only concern I have is the PSU output of 250w.
Im willing to upgrade PSU if you think it totally necessary,
Let me know what you guys think.
Thanks

I would get at least a 450-500w psu. However, your case might not fit them.. 1 sec..

I wouldn't necessarily mind having the power supply outside the case if that's also an option because that might allow more breathing room for the card inside the cramped case.

That case is tiny. After a few minutes of searching, a conventional psu will not fit, not will a graphics card that is anywhere near normal size. It's gonna be hard to upgrade your stuff, not saying it's impossible, but difficult.

yeah it is a tiny case, im wondering i can buy a different, regular size case to replace this one and still use my current hardware.

But which of these cards would you recommend for optimal gaming experience?
