What GPU can you get with $120?

hello, I'm new to this stuff and i want to upgrade my GPU. I currently use HD 5450 (for 1.5 years), athlon II x2 250, Biostar N68s3 board, and 300 watts PSU. I'm not a hardcore gamer but I just want a faster GPU for my 19'' screen. I don't know if i should both go upgrade my CPU and GPU cuz my budget is so limited, I also want to stay at my DDR3 board. I got few options but I don't know what's best. What do you think guys?

If you're asking what games I play. I play AC3 (im a big fan actually), Skyrim, Dirt3, Vikings and etc. Actually, ive got a lot of games but due to my low end gpu I can't get my self playing them. I really need some help guys.

    I see. But I'm not looking to get the best gaming experience, I just want a better experience than what my GPU gives me. Do you have any suggestions?
  3. 120$ should get you an HD 7750 GDDR5 card, upto 3-4 times your cards performance... And, You might find a stock HD 7770 laying around somewhere, but I don't think it's recommended to get that for your power supply...
  4. I already post a link to your best cheap option.

    The reason know no one has suggested a 7770 is because his Power supply cannot take it. He'll probably need a card that doesn't require cables to go into it, the best being a 7750.
  7. Sir, I my PSU is now 550 watts will it be okay now with this?
  8. Does it have a 6 pin PCIe connector? If it does, I would go for the best 7770 you could get. Its a great card, great quiet cooler, and looks rather nice as well.

    Its also the equally highest clocked 7770.
