Graphic card under $150

Hi,

I am looking for a graphic card under $150 for my i7-920 - DX58SO system. I am thinking about "SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7750" card, but not sure if it would work well with PCI 2.0 slot on my system.

  2. U can get get HIS 7770 for $125. This is 20-25% faster than 7750 but u need a good 400w psu with pcie connector.

    Thanks "raheel167" for your reply. Can you please explain me little more about the "pcie connector" as you mentioned earlier. Is there any additional card required to support the HIS 7770 or will it work with my i7-920 DX580SO configuration?

    I am novice so wanted to confirm before buying.

    Thanks again for your time.

  3. Any PCI-e card (1.0, 2.0, 3.0) will work in any PCI-e slot (1.0, 2.0, 3.0). Your motherboard has a PCI-e 2.0 slot which is fast enough for any currently existing graphics card.

    Cards in the future might benefit from the increased speeds of PCI-e 3.0, but current cards to not.
  4. Thanks a lot raheel167, jsrudd for reply.

    I will verify the power supply name and update the thread.

    I have verified that my power supply is of 400W. In that case out of the below graphic cards, which one would work without any issues.

    Below is my sytem configuration -
    CPU: i7-920 (No overclocking)
    MB: Intel DX58SO
    HDD: WD Blue 640GB

  6. Please tell +12v ratings on power supply ratings
  7. ASHISH65 - Can you please explain little more about how to verify the +12V power supply rating and what is the significance of it? Please excuse for asking very basic questions, but that will help me in improving my knowledge base.

    raheel167 - The maker is Cooler Master.


    Using Google I found the below link from newegg to calculate the wattage requirement and it returned 384W PSU requirement for my system configuration.

    Thanks for sharing the links. It was a great piece of learning.

    I have checked the +12V rating on my PC is 230W.

  10. Also,

    Would 7750 be a better choice over GTX650?
  11. Best answer
    Gtx 650 is little better than hd 7750.but gtx 650 needs 6 pin connector and you need to upgrade your psu.but hd 7750 is best choice even it hd 7750 at its peak load consumes just 43w.just go with hd 7750.

  14. Meanwhile I was considering to upgrade my PSU with "Seasonic S12II 520 Watts PSU", so should I proceed with it or the existing PSU will be able to support the new card?
  15. With that upgrading psu you can get hd 7770.

    Not sure if the 7770 would work seamlessly with my Intel DX58SO MB :-)
