I want to add a discrete graphics card so i can run games like LoL and TF2 and play it at maxed or ok settings since the integrated graphics will only run LoL at lowest settings.
It doesn't say in the link but the power supply is only 220 watts so i'm really limited to which card i can get. It only has 1 PCI-e 1.0 expansion slot so i'm not sure if PCI-e 2.0 or 2.1 would be compatible. Clearance shouldn't be too much of a problem there seems to be plenty of space as long as the card isn't too long like 11 inches.
Can anyone recommend which card i should get or if i should just stick with the integrated graphics? Getting a whole new computer is not an option by the way. thanks in advance.
I cant trust myself to say try a 7750 in this case. a low power consuming card would be the 6450, but its only slightly stronger than the integrated graphics inside laptop sandy bridge/i5-2500k/i7-2600k. though I can think the 6450 can run the games in question with lowest settings.
just to be clear on my statement, I know my cousin uses the intel HD 3000 to play l4d2 and borderlands. Another cousin uses it to play LoL so I'm pretty confident even something as weak as a 6450 can get away with lowest settings.
