Hello all, I am currently new to this site and this will be my first ever time asking question here so I apologize if I am posting in the wrong forum. I am also a computer noob so I am sorry if I have no idea what I am talking about at sometimes.

But I need a complete upgrade of my Dell Inspiron 531s (slim line) so I can run certain games at a better level (fps). I know I don't have a gaming equipt computer, but since I can't get one for a long time I might as well upgrade its gpu.

What are some good Graphics Cards? I know I have a slim line so I need a decent, low-profile one for a low price because I am on a budget ($200 at max).

Here are my pc specs:
processor - AMD Antholon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ 2.01GHz
RAM - 2gb
operating system - windows vista 32 bit
Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE nforce 430

Best solution

My dad has the exact same pc as yours and damn is it old..

Your cpu and ram are HUGE bottlenecks, the only card I can recommend is the radeon 7750.

I also recommend upgrading to at least 4 GB's of ram
