Hello, I've been stuck with this really crappy integraded graphic card and I'm planning on upgrading it. I've never had an upgrade for my pc so I'm asking you guys for advice. What's a good gaming graphics card compatible with this computer? Thanks. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My budget is around $100

this is the best i think you'll do. youre very limited because of the computer its being used in. The small form factor makes it hard to find anything really worthy of gaming. plus the cpu will be limiting in some newer games.

You look like you need a Low Profile (LP) video card. There are several models of 7750s that are low profile, like this one:

There is also a Sapphire model (or 2), and possibly a PowerColor. These are your best bet.

your power supply might also come into play as they usually put somewhat low power supplies in those. that card i put should work though.

Agreed! Your PSU can take this card no problem. It uses just a bit over half the power the PCI-E connection delivers.

Amazon.com has it, but the price is a little steep.
