I have a newer computer that runs great. It does everything I want it to do, even if it is a bit slow sometimes. I want to hook it up to my PlayStation 3D Display. :D  But I do not want to spend a lot of money. I am tapped after the pc, ps3, and tv. What video card should I buy so I do not lose quality, but make it so I can hook up to HD?

Here is my motherboard: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02...

I need something that will work with PCIx16, 300 watt power, and on a budget. Thank you all in advance.

The HD7750 (800GHz version) will be the strongest card you can safely run on a 300W PSU. Depending on whether it needs to be low-profile or single-slot, you'll spend $90-$120 on it (quite a range). If that's too rich, you can find a GDDR5 version of the HD6670 for as low as $75 if you play the rebate game and win. If that's still too high, some DDR3 versions of the HD6670 are as low as $50 after MIR; quite frankly though, with an APU, anything less than the HD7750 may not feel like enough of an improvement to be worth the price.

Thanks. If you get a HD7750, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. You may need to turn down AA because of the 128bit memory buss, but you'll be able to play on "decent" settings.
