Looking to try and make a media PC I've had for a fair few years A little bit more able in the gaming department.
I'm not expecting to play anything new but some stuff thats a bit older like Medieval 2/empire total war and some of the less graphic hungry games /indie games you can find on steam.
It has a very low power supply of 350Watts am I going to be able to add a low profile PCI Express graphics card that is low power enough to work with the PSU and provide a decent increase over the onboard 7100?
Thanks a lot for these suggestions the 6670 and 6650 are hitting the right budget for me and look like good cards ill have a proper look into the benchmarks and see whether its worth stretching to the 7750 etc.
Also do you think my cpu may could hold back performance on any of these cards?
A ati-x600 is not great, but it is a rebadged and die-shrunk ati-9600pro, so it has very good game support in spite of its age. It also forces everything to run in faster dx-9.0c mode in windows7. Games like cod 1, 2, 3, fear, ect should run well on this card. It's still alot faster than onboard geforce 7200.
Most indie titles and bit older games support the x600.
