300Watt graphics cards?

Hello...
I recently bought game Skyrim, but problem is it laggs so much when i get into high graphic place. so i decide to get a new graphics card to make better performance. When i look over the graphic card i was happy to get a xfx radeon 6770 but problem is i need a 500watt power supply (psu)..

My computer has
bestec 300w max 12v/19a, 5v/25a, 3.3v/18a
1tb hard drive
Window 8 64 bit

I can use my money up to $120. Is there any good graphic card 300w power supply that can run the skyrim on mid to high performance?

  1. sorry if i sound too blunt but i would not upgrade to ANY graphics card w/o a better PSU. that 18 amp 12 volt rail is . . very weak.

    any decent PSU will have 80% on the 12 volt rail (12*18= 216/.8= 270)

    so that is really about 270 watts . . . :(
  2. this def not the best PSU but its cheap and that is what you are looking for. You can actually get a very decent PSU for $120...

    just remember, if you decide to upgrade and you need a better psu then you will regret not spending the extra cash on a good one..

    i'll see your overpriced FSP and raise 30 watts for $15 cheaper before rebate :lol:
    CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 $39.99
    $19.99 after $20.00 rebate card
  4. CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 is the best budget psu.
