    is $75 top budget amount?

    If not, what is your budget?

  4. There's the 550ti which is better than the 640 gt :
    For more 5$.

    or a 7750 if you have a psu with less than 400w without pcie 6 pin connector :

    gddr5 is the video memory used in newer cards, doesn't affect
    any other part of your system

    BTW, dj suggested some good alternatives for GPU if you can spend a little
    more than $75

    any suggetion for gtx 650
  8. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GDDR5

    It's better than the 2GB DDR3 of the 640 gt.

    There's the msi 650 gtx :

    In my opinion not worth it, the 550ti and 7750 offers the same performance for less price.
  9. does my motherboard supports gddr5?my mother board is intel original dh55tc 2.0 x16 slot

    Hi again - the gddr5 is in the GPU, it doesn't affect your MOBO
    or any other parts of your system.

    And again dj has given good suggestions on GPU's
  11. Yes, it doesn't affect, i feel compelled to ask, what's your psu ?
    Because the 650 and 550 ti requires more power and a pcie 6-pin connector than the 640 gt or 7750.
