[Help] Finding a Graphics Card [Help]

Hey all,

I recently just bought a new computer and I'm trying to find a new graphics card, I'm not a computer expert...so I don't know squat about computers, i just need a new graphics card that can handle everything on da max. Games, computer animation, and pretty much everything else.

Price range, anything around $350 or below.

Screen res, 1920 x 1080

Oh and i need a new Power Supply! mine currently is 350W, which sucks... Any Power supply that will handle the new Graphics card.

Price range for Power Supply, any.

Don't know my computer specs, but I'll post a link to the computer(where i bought it)


Another link, i hope this helps...

  1. We realy need to know a budget or at laest a price range.

    A new power supply and a new gpu will set yoe back quite some cash.

    Also what's the res you're playing at ?

    Maybe we can reccomend a gpu which will run on that psu.
  2. Thank you for your quick reply :) I edited the thread, and maybe but i could use a new power supply...nowadays graphics cards are taking up all the Waaaaattts. How much $$ would it set me back? All the best graphics cards use a lot of power, don't think 350W will handle it and my computer.

    1920 x 1080 and around $350 or below.
  3. either a GTX 660 ti or a 7950... those are the top 2 cards for less than $350...
  4. Oh, wait, now i see that the card may cost 350 and the psu is seperate.

    Yeah, the 7950 would be nice then :D
  5. Out of all those links, which Power Supply and Graphics card would be the best?

    7950, this? ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161407 )
  6. No not nessacary that one, only thought it had to fit in a total of 350. Sapphire, Asus, XFX, MSI, His are good brands. ( i like this one ; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121489 and this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151087 LoL )
  7. These two look good, but will they fit? I don't want to buy it then find out they don't fit :( Kinda a lot of money, any possible way to lower the Power Supply $? Just don't change the Watts.

  8. Well the Asus is more expensive because it's, euh, crap ? Sorry mate, normally i read the reviews at newegg, this time assumed it would be an as great card as the other Asus designs were with the 560 and stuff. Did read the reviews now and forget i ever mentioned that card. :pfff:

    Sometimes it's not clear why cards with the same specs are different priced. It has to do with things you don't see at hand, things like better capacitators, better cooling and better build quality overall
  9. I really like the ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161407 ) and ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020 ) but the 7950 uses a maximum of 500W and the Power Supply is only 650W. Would it work? I could get the 750W ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-139-010&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=4&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Keywords=%28keywords%29&Page=1#scrollFullInfo ), but trying to save money here :)

    Will the Graphics Card and either one of the Power Supply's fit?
  10. The 7950 doesn't use 500W, that's the maximum total system power ( and even that won't be reached ) They advice a 500W for the whole system.

    Psu is ok and if you want the His, why not, it's a decent brand i believe. ( i only don't like the one fan design, like two fans better ) ( better cooling, better oc'ing )

    They will fit i think, just make sure you have two slots free and enough space behind the pci-e slot. ( it's almost 12" long so make sure you have enough room for it. )
