Hey community,
I got a new computer about 3 months ago and the major downfall of it was the radon 7450 graphics card. (Link to system specs: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03...)

The current graphics card only runs games at 1600x900 on low mostly about 25 fps. I would like to increase the settings and still get high fps, but my power supply is 300w. I looked at the watt usage of the radeon 6850 loaded, and it was 127. The proccessor's TDP is only 95, so I was wondering if it's possible to use the 6850. If not, what are my options because I would like to keep the cost to $150 and under ($200 max).

The best card you can get with that power supply is a 7750 (800Mhz).

How good is it? Would it be able to do what I wanted, because I'm willing to upgrade my PSU.

It's a great budget value card. If you are going to upgrade your PSU, then the next step is the 7770

If you want the best mid-range price/performance card 7850.

So if i am following you correctly, if I upgrade my psu, then I should probably go with the 7770 over the 6850? And how hard is it to self install it?
