I am looking at getting a new graphics card for my computer. I have a Dell Inspiron 560. The reason I am looking for a new graphics card is because I would like to purchase the new SimCity coming out. The game has requirements of :
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better or Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better
ATI Radeon HD 2x00 or better*
nVidia 7800 or better*
Intel Series 4 integrated graphics or better*
My computer has this:
Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5800 @ 3.20GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB
Graphics: Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset
I already was told that my graphics are not good enough so I was looking at what was compatible with my Dell and came up with this card for a good price:
Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 Silence 1GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low Profile PCI-Express Video Card
Would this card be equal or better than the ATI Radeon HD 2x00?
Also I would be purchasing a power supply I was looking at Dynex 400 watt ATX
Dynex is the Best Buy house brand. Probably doesnt produce anywhere near 400w of clean power. Just read a review of this PSU. Its made by Huntkey and hardwaresecrets.com reviewed the 450w version of it, it exploded, literally, when they tried to pull 450w from it. So its garbage.
