Upgrading a Radeon 4350?

I want to upgrade my Radeon 4350 because I'm almost sure (but correct me if I'm wrong) that most of the choppiness in my games comes from having a Radeon 4350. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


PROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Anytime, any day!

BUDGET RANGE: I'm hoping to keep at close to $100 but the absolute most I'm willing to spend is $150

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: I use the computer for primarily gaming. Most games I play are relatively older or not graphic intensive so they run smooth but games like Diablo 3 run choppy.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Radeon 4350 GPU and 550w generic PSU.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 925

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-MA785G-UD3H

RAM: 5gb DDR2 Memory (I forgot the brand)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS:Though I often use newegg, it really doesn't matter as long as I get the best deal

PARTS PREFERENCES: None

OVERCLOCKING/SLI/Crossfire: None of them.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

You're right, if you trying to play games at 1080, the Radeon HD 4350 is not up to snuff at all. Luckily for you, there is a great $100ish option that will do exactly what you want and will run just fine off a poor quality PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$109 after MIR.

Does that psu have a pci-e power connector, or better two ?

Hmm.. I believe it only has one.

The 7770 sounds just fine then. :) 

If you had two the GTX560 would be better, but with one the 7770 is the safest way to go. ( without using molex adapters and stuff )
