  2. well your mobo has one pci express x16 slot, so you can add new graphics card. But your 300w power supply is limiting everything. I think an ati 6570 would do just fine.

    this runs fine on a 300w psu, even on a 220w hp slimline.

    HD 6670 would perform better AND it has GDDR5 memory which for gaming increases performance a ton.

    yeah I know but I was more worried about the power draw. While the 6670 runs fine on some 300w psu but the psu has to be modern and I think the one op has is a bit old. The 6570 works fine on my hp slimline with 220w so I thought it was the safest bet. Either card will be a huge upgrade from the integrated graphics op has.

    A 6670 on a 300w with only a dual core would be fine. We're only talking around a 10-20w difference between the 2. And the 6670 has better VRAM bandwidth, pixel fillrate, and texture rate. And at low-end cards, those are all performance limiters (not like high end cards where Pixel fillrate has hit a wall since it doesn't need to get higher, 32 ROP's is fine).
  6. thanks for the suggestions. The only game i play right now is league of legends. It sucks playing 12 fps at low settings. If my comp really can handle it i might as well invest in the 6670 but either is a huge step up from this integrated card.
    really appreciate the help guys.
