I don't have many choices to upgrade with my PC.
I game and want to save money.
I do not wish to spend more than $100.
My Motherboard is a Dell (Inspiron 546) Model:0F896N Version: A02
I currently run a GT 220 (1GB)
Dimensions: Height: 4.376 inches
Width: 6.6 inches
Power Supply says : Max Output Power 300w. Model #: HP-P3017F3
I have the room for a Duel Slot Card, I'm not using any of the other slots below the Graphics which grants the room.
I was looking at a GT 610. Seems 100% compatible.
(is it worth the $50 upgrade? the increase of performance looks minuscule.)
was also looking at a 620/630. Nvidia says needs 300w. PNY( possible seller) says needs 350w.
Suggestions would be great and very much appreciated!
I don't know the performance of te 610, but if it's like NVIDIA's previous series, it's not good. Their best cards have ended in 80 the last couple iterations (480, 580, 680), with their dual-gpu solutions using 90. the 70's and 60's also have good performance, and the 50's are decent, but performance drastically falls off in the 40's, 30's and under.
For example, a GT 520 is even worse than your 220, and a GT 430 is barely better than the card you already have.
For a $100 budget, here's the most powerful options I can find.
Thanks, However id have to upgrade my Power Supply for to accommodate for the both of them. Oh well, ill return to saving up for a full PC build. Had hopes i could hold off for a few yrs by enhancing just the card.
