More about what cheapest card upgrade
  1. how much is your budget?
  2. same like gt 210 . its fine little bit more or less
  3. To be doing any decent gaming you'll need at least a GTX 460, a GTX 550ti ot in the worst possible case, a GTX 260. And those start at $130. Keep in mind also that if you want to upgrade your CPU, you'll have to go with an older series dual-core.

    As kramkat said, what is you budget? Also, what games do you plan on playing and at what resolution?
  4. if your power supply is at least 300W get the 7750.
    I can play the latest games it, changing settings of course on 1080p.
  5. is that gt210 card really weak as people said.? can't i use it?
  6. yup it is... GT version are weak.. so if you want to upgrade choose those GTX series like GTX 550.
  7. thanks. i must check with the local supplier ...
  8. A bit late with the reply, but GT cards nowadays are only entry-level. GTX is where the power's at.
  9. yes the 210 is weak. I own it and stuck it in my dad's computer since he does nothign except youtube. if you're gamer don't go 210. best cheapest card is the 7750 like i said
