I am trying to find a graphics card that will work appropriately with my Gateway DX4860 desktop so I can play some of the more demanding current games. I have 6 GB of RAM currently installed with a 3.30 GHz process with a 1600 by 900 20 inch monitor. My budget is about $150 - $400, so my question to you guys is this:
1. Which graphics card will work best with my desktop and give me the best "bang for my buck."
2. If I need to upgrade my desktop's power supply, what's the appropriate one to purchase?
What power supply do you have? the 300W or the optional 500W. If it was me, I would buy a quality PSU (500, or 550w), and then maybe a 7870. You should be able to get both for under 400 probably closer to 300-320.
