Hello, I have a gateway SX2803(http://us.gateway.com/gw/en/US/content/model/PT.GBSP2.0...) and i'm trying to find out what my best upgrade option is in terms of gaming with a graphics card. It has a 220w PSU and a PCI express x16 slot. I've tried to find what a good one is but i dont understand what exactly constitutes greatness in the graphics card world, and all the posts i can find are from 2010 and i feel that things have changed since then because alot of mixed opinion from the responses i find. Help me plox
Thank you for the reply, but the card you linked is really poor, ive read of people using the Radeon HD 5670 without problems and ive read a great article (http://www.blogula-rasa.com/2009/08/22/upgrade-a-go-go/...) about how a person used a GeForce 9600 GT with exactly the same pcu/case without too much of a problem(well no problems for 3 years), i was wondering more, if in the years past there are greater cards than these that can be feasibly used with my machine.
It depends on which games u wanna play and at what resolution. I'd recommend a hd 6850 or a hd 6870if u want to play games like bf3 but u'll need to upgrade ur psu.
Well, as i'm using a TV for a display it will always be the native resolution 1360x768(i could never get it's real native resolution to work over hdmi 1366x768) I'm really only interested in finding what's the best gpu i can run wih my current GPU, because i feel that with this case it will be extremely hard to find a PSU that will even fit, and i dont plan on doing so much heavy gaming, some WoW, Dota2, Diablo III, Portal 2.
