  1. Could you be more specific with your power supply unit specs? Like brand and model, and whether it has a PCI express power connector?

    If it has a power connector, I'd advice getting GTX 650 Ti:

  2. I wouldn't risk getting a card I linked: you power supply will not be able to cope with it. I'd suggest getting HD 7750:

  3. alright thanks. What about GFX from Maplin or PC World? and 2GB if it's possible?
  4. 2 GB vs 1 GB will not make any difference at all to the performance. HD 7750 is not strong enough to make use of 2 GB ram.

    As for maplin: prices are insanely high there. Don't buy anything from it! And here's a link from PC World:

  5. thanks
    could you just tell me what specs the gfx must have to work on the computer?
  6. It must have low power consumption (must not require auxiliary power connector from the power supply unit).
