I want to upgrade my graphics video card... I am using Nvidia GeForce 9400GT 512mb ddr2 128bit, Intel Pentium dual core processor, 4gb RAM, 350watt power supply, ASUS P5SD2-VM motherboard... any suggestions what videocard am I gonna buy to replace my existing videocard? I thought of using any 1gb ddr3 videocard... pls help...
They all have low power usage and should work fine on your 350W PSU (As long as it's a make of decent quality)
For any form of gaming, stay clear of 4350's, 5450's... They are great strictly for office productivity, in other words, adding a second screen...
(Still beats an onboard 4250, nvidia 8200 or Intel HD but you are limited to very old titles or very low details)
I personally played Mafia II on the following specs at a friend's place. (It's their spare HDTV PC)
