hey but a hd 7770 is overkill for 1440x900
an hd 6670 or hd 7750 is better suited
also remember he has a no brand 600w psu which probably only delivers 300-350w of power on load

Its not an overkill, he will get nice FPS, and if the PSU is really that bad, the 550 ti does not consume that much power, keep in mind he is not using an i5/i7 so he should be fine with a gtx 550 ti, just in case he upgraded the monitor, why to stick with the weaker card ? the 550 ti or the 7770 will provide him very nice FPS at this resolution, and if he upgraded the monitor to 1920x1080 maybe, he still get a nice playable FPS...

his processor will bottleneck the s##t out of anyhing higher than a hd 5670 ddr3 :lol: 
unless he plans to upgrade his entire system in the near future anything higher than a hd 6670 or hd 7750 (which is already bottlenecked) is not recommended

Idk, but i would go for the better card just in case am upgrading, weather its the monitor, or even the CPU.......keep in mind that a dual core pentium won't be hard bottlenecking the 550 ti or 7770.....lower performance yes, but acceptable until upgrading...

With a $150 I would highly recommend the 6850 or the 7770, but since we do not know any specifications of the power supply (which are important) I would side with the 7770 due to its low power draw.

Can you give us more information on the power supply? I would recommend the 6850 since its a little faster but dont feel safe doing so because of the power supply. Though even if it is not a very good 600W you should be able to run it.

Mainly brand. Either way the 6850 should run anyway, but I want to make sure its not one of the worst units on the market, like this APower one I have that is 680W, but can't put out more than 400W.
