HP Pavilion h8-1234 PC
AMD six-core fx-6120 processor
10gb ddr3 system memory
radeon HD 7450 graphics card with 1gb ddr3
I'm looking for a better graphics card that can run games with high resolution settings. it doesn't have to be the ultra high, but better than normal. I'm trying to stay under $200. I believe i have plenty of memory, but after doing some research it seems that the current graphics card can only run medium to low settings. I played a game and discovered it could barely handle medium settings. any suggestions?
Thanks for the help. I'm looking into the 7770 with a 550 w power supply. I just have to make sure it will fit.
well, if your getting a 550w psu, then you may consider getting the hd7770 ghz edition/ hd6870. Sapphire vaporx is a good one. I looked into the dimension of your mobo any of these cards should fit without any problem.
generally, it depends on the brand and the ratings on the 12V rail. Most of the antec, corsair, silverstone, coolermaster, OCz psus are known to be reliable. You should stay away from some random dodgy brand psu cause they tend to fail more often than not.
Corsair cx430 or a corsair cx500 are the most ideal psu for your needs.
I plan on purchasing this same PC myself in the next day or two. I have an Antec HCG 620 watt PSU(89.00 from Newegg) and a NVidia GTX 550ti graphics card(110.00 from Best Buy) that I will swap in from my old PC. That was a 7yr old machine. Dual core that was just not worth upgrading anymore. Hopefully the parts I have will fit. I believe they will. I'll let you know how that turns out. Good upgrades for about 200.00. I puchased the PSU and Vid card a few months ago.
