what is the best graphics card that will fit on a p7p55d EVO motherboard?.

i currently am running the 9800GT but want/need to move up to direct X 11. my CPU is i5 750 and i have a 450(?) power supply.
I would love a list of interchangeable parts but that isn't going to happen. i have looked at upgrading my CPU to accommodate my needs but it is not cost effective for me.

Your only Limiting factor would be your psu and how much space you have for the card. I would think a 7770 or maybe a 7850 would work depending on the quality of your psu. The 7770 would be a decent upgrade.


Here's a list of how much power draw different cards have.

If you could afford to upgrade your psu even to this it would help a lot.

i wish i knew, i just opened the case to see but sadly there is no label on it that i can see whithout removing it from its place. it is grey with no markings on it. i asked the guy who built it and he thought it was 480 watt standard? but it was built 2 years ago

update. been combing the web and found this is identical to mine (Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply)
