Hi All,

Please suggest a good graphics card for the below system details also suggest the minimum PSU required as i feel mine is an obsolete PSU around 350-400W.

Mobo: MSI H67MA E35
Processor: Intel coew is 2100 3.1 Ghz
Ram: Corsair 4 GB 1333 Mhz

I want to play games like Assassin's Creed 3, Most Wanted 2, etc. in high settings.

I think your processor is core i3 2100. Which is your PSU? The brand? if you want a card with low power consumption go with the new GTX 650 Ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Or HD 7770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... But I will really say that upgrade your PSU because this graphics card require minimum of 400W and if you want a good PSU in a budget get the Corsair CX 600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thank you for your reply. Yes it is core i3 2100.
I probably will upgrade the PSU. There is not much of a difference in the prices of GTX 650 Ti and HD 6850, is the later any good than the GTX 650 Ti?
And is processor going to bottleneck the GPU?

Upgrade it. Here is the problem even low power GPUs are going to push your system and likely shorten the life of the PSU you have currently. An upgrade for a 550w or so is dirt cheap and will expand what you can get.
