Hey :) 
I'm planning to replace my graphics card with something better for playing games.
My specs are:
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 630
RAM: 4.1 gb
PSU: 300W
GPU: Nvidia G210

My budget is about €110 and I'm currently playing games like Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
I don't need to run these games at high settings. Medium settings, 1280x720 and 50 FPS is just fine ^^

I already looked around and saw that the 6670 is not a bad choice, but i wanted to see what you guys, the more experienced ones, suggest.

Any help at all is very much appreciated and thanks for taking your time to help me :D

yeah. the 6670 is pretty much all you need for games sine you are at such a low resolution. if you want to step up a little, the 7750 is another great choice

I've searched for a nice 7750 card on newegg and found this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Is this card a good choice?

Thanks for helping me :)

just showing another option


Just 2 more questions:

Do you think it's worth the money to buy the 7750 instead of the 6670 and don't I need to get a new PSU if I buy the 7750 or the 6670 (The AMD website says that I need to have a 400 Watt PSU for the 6670 and the 7750)?

if the psu is from a decent brand, it should handle the 7750 no problem.

its probably worth the extra cash. your choice there

another no-name brand. get something better like the pc power and cooling mk3 400w. it should still work in your current system though
