Hi
Pls recommend some Decent graphics cards for this psu : atv piv-450watts

PSU Details :
+5v = 25A
-5v = 0.5A
+12v = 10A
-12v =0.5A
-3.3V= 14A
+5VSB = 1.5A

(I currently have GT 530 2gb and want a better one !)

it also depends on what cpu you have to help with the performance and power requirements

ok, here is the problem with getting you a great GPU +12v = 10A that is 120 watts for you CPU and GPU along with your Hard Drive and DVD writer.
that GT 530 uses 50 watts and the next best thing that uses that low power is a 7750. not really that much of an upgrade considering you have an i5-2300.

you really need to upgrade that PSU.

No , the HD 7750 was actually a brilliant idea , i was watching gameplays and benchmarks and it's doing really good , but , my psu doesnt have a 6pin connector , is this card a PCI powerred card like my gt 530 ????

yes. the power requirements are the same
Measured power consumption R7750
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 43 Watts
(anything under 75 watts does not require a 6 pin)

if you are happy with that, excellent.

sorry if looking at your cpu got me thinking you can get a higher end GPU without worrying about a bottleneck.

1-the hd 7750 (from what i found on the net) is as powerful as the gtx 550ti or maybe just a bit slower but it can match the gtx 550 ti ..
2-by the way , you said something like my cpu deserved something better , what do u suggest ?

yes the 7750 is a great lower/mid entry gaming card.

with a i5-2300 you would be able to get a 7770 for ~$120 plus $35 for a quality 450 watts PSU
like:
Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 $44.00
$34.00 after mail-in rebate
ASUS Radeon HD 7770 DirectCU 1020MHZ 1GB $119.98

or if you get a 500+watt PSU
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W $59.99
$39.99 after mail-in rebate card

only your budget would hold you back from getting a
XFX FX-785A-CNFC Radeon HD 7850 $234.99
$214.99 after mail-in rebate card

that i5-2300 may not be as great as an overclocked i5-2500K @4.1 Ghz but it still is nothing to sneeze at.

Thank you so much , one last question : i might not fight the hd 7750 in my country is there any other decent low power card ? (just in case ididn't find the 7750)

i think a 6670 would be a bit of an upgrade that is low power.
