I am on a $100 Budget and am looking to upgrade the graphics card on my computer. This is my EXACT computer My next question woulud be that if I were to use either of these cards would it fit into the PSU of this computer.

But either of these will work with my power supply right?

Yep both will work with a 300W power supply.

Ok but one important question... I think that I have integrated graphics because I am running an AMD A-4 which with my understanding has the Amd Radeon HD 6410D Integrated. I do have extra PCI slots so I can bypass this correct?

7750 by a mile, not even a close contest.

As far as PCIe slots, you'll have to open the case or check your documentation for that info. All builds are different or you may have an odd shaped case or whatever.

Ok turns out I don't have Integrated graphics after all so looks like im all clear to go with the 7750

Your graphics are running on the processor, that's how the AMD APU units work.

I noticed you linked to your PC in the first post, which I missed before. looking at the pictures for that computer, you definitely have a PCIe slot that can run a 7750.

Your CPU is going to be pretty underpowered for many games, however. I wonder if you wouldn't be happier with a upgraded processor (which also comes with upgraded graphics). This would be a big graphics and processor upgrade in one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

6670 is overpriced and for the same price or less on can buy a 5770/6770 while a little more buys a 7750. Sometimes one might get lucky and get a much more powerful card for less. I've seen 7770 going below $100 and then there is the massive second hand market.

I agree, but 6770 won't run on 300W! :)

why not just upgrade the apu ?

He can't get more than a 7750 otherwise he'd need a new PSU which is far out of budget.

The A4 has the graphics on the CPU. So it is integrated graphics. But adding a GPU such as a 7750 will override it and it'll just be idle.

it would not be a bad ideal to get a A8-3850 but that build is limited to 1333 RAM, to get the best out of the igpu its better for 1866. so it would be better to go a discrete card route for better performance.

I like the idea of upgrading my Processor all the way just to have my integrated graphics upgraded too, but since my computer already has 4 gigs of ram installed Would this overpower the processor.

I don't quite understand what you're asking since the integrated graphics are on the CPU die.

Probably. It's just a really low end processor for gaming. You aren't going to get the full potential out of that $100 card.

The board does take 1866, it would just add to the cost of the upgrade.


I guess if it were me, I'd probably add the A8 now, upgrade RAM when I got a little more money. Later I would upgrade the power supply and add something like a 7770. By then it would be a pretty nice gaming rig.

for once the feedback on newegg is not a joke; the BIOS is limited to 1333.

do you really think the igpu wpould be better than a 7750? adding more cores won't matter for gaming and a 300 watt PSU will limit any overclocking, if any.

Motherboard support page said 1866.

Like I said before, I think as a two step process, that upgrading the processor is the best first step. Pure benchmark tests show the 7750 slaughtering the 6550D APU graphics, but they also don't pair it with a really slow processor to do those tests. I honestly don't know which would give a better experience. A4-3400 benches like a Athlon X2-6400, which is pretty far down there. A8-3850 benches pretty well for games.

should have known most people don't know about updating a BIOS :p 

not saying your POV is wrong. but i just went and got an i5 instead of a 7950 when i had the money because i figured it would get bottle necked by an i3 in some games. well since then work slowed down and i had to fix my van. so instead of an i3/7950 i sit here with a i5 and 570 i picked up off of ebay for $150 and kicking myself for not sticking with my plan; i am sure my frame rates and settings would be better.
:pfff:
