ok, i'm looking at getting a new graphics card, because the one i currently have is a
'ATI Radeon HD 5400' which really is kind of awful, I believe the only information required is my motherboard which is 'GA-h55m-ud2h' but if any more info is required plz tell me. one more thing the main use of the graphics card will be Gaming. Thanks in advance.

Budget would be nice. Also the resoltuion of your Monitor. And your CPU to ensure no bottlenecking. And your PSU model =D

If you dont know the model of your PSU, you can always..

Open up the side of your case and take a picture of the tag on the side of your PSU.
Upload the Photo to Photobucket
And link the Photo here

December 23, 2012 2:45:56 PM

about £0 - £100 for a new PSU and why do you need to know where i live

because certain countries only get shipped certain products, and also i will recommand a shop that ships directly and within the country of origin :) .

alright lets see.

whats ur budget for powersupply+videocard in all?

December 23, 2012 2:50:16 PM

ok i'd pay £0 - £400 in all for both and I live in the U.K but i suppose i could get the item's shipped to me.
