Need a list of gpu with pixel shader 3.0

I want to play games such as Magic The Gathering 2012 on my PC but when I check the specs, everything exceeds the minimum System Requirements except for the graphics.

I need a list of GPUs with pixel shader 3.0 thats compatible with my system.

Here's my dxdiag log:

I'm thinking of buying a card w/ Nvidia GTX 550Ti w/ 2GB VRAM,
but I'm not sure if that will suffice...what do you think guys?

Any feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks! :D

More about need list pixel shader
  1. Please delete most of that DXDIAG report, as it is pretty useless and just takes precious space. The only useful info was:

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
    Memory: 4 GB
    Resolution: 1366x768

    I'll also need to know whether your computer is standard size, what power supply you got and how much you wanted to spend.

    Oh, and by the way, all graphics card that have been made in last 5 years support that pixel shader.
  2. What do u mean standard size? Is it the form factor of the motherboard?
    If it is, mine is: uATX Form Factor
    9.6 inch x 7.6 inch ( 24.4 cm x 19.3 cm )

    Cooler Master GX 550W
    (for more info:
  3. Form factor of the computer case. Is it standard case or small case?? How much do you want to spend?
  4. the size of the case is important because if it is a slim case that can only fit low profile cards, it will limit your choices quite alot. only slower cards are availble in low profile versions...
  5. Casing:
    ATX /Micro-ATX
    Cooler Master Elite 371
    ( )

    Hmmm.... Around $140.00 (USD) I guess?

  7. Just a curious question though, aren't there any known issues for using ATi with a PC using Intel? I mean, ATi was manufactured now by AMD.

    Thanks for the suggestion btw.. :D
  8. Nop, there aren't any issues whatsoever.
  9. Ok. Thanks.. :D
