Hi. I bought my pc in 2009, and the graphics card died this week. I was quite happily playing SWTOR on the card that it came with, but the lousy repair guy ordered a card and installed it without asking my opinion and then proceeded to tell me it was good enough for my needs. Guess what? It isn't.

I have copy and pasted the info from my purchase email as to my original specs. Everything but the card is the same. He replaced that with a GeForce 210. (1024mb DDR3) I would really appreciate some help with picking out the right card. My husband can install the new one now we know what the problem is.

Performance Base Unit. Intel® Core® 2 Duo. (Q8200 (4M Cache, 2.33 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB) , Case 8 Apevia Qpack 420Watt PSU , Desktop Option 800 Watt PSU , Vista Premium & Disc , Asus P5SD2-VM Motherboard , Asus GTS 250 1GB Graphics , 500GB Sata 2 Hard Drive , 2 X 2GB DDR 2 800 MHz Memory )

Thanks,
Mel

That's actually pretty funny that he replaced a GTS250 with a GT210. The GT210 is a piece of junk.

Anyway, you stated that there is a Case 8 Apevia Qpack 420W PSU, and then stated that you have the desktop option 800W PSU. Which one do you have?

Also, how much do you want to spend?

The 800W was an upgrade I purchased. I think they listed the other as it was the standard. Bit confusing. I would be happy paying no more than £175.

Thanks for both replies.
