Hi there ,

I am looking for a graphics card and PSU capable of playing the likes of Euro Truck Simulator 2, Farming Simulator 2 & Sims 3 on a budget of £50 may be able to stretch to £60-65 . Been looking at a Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 . Its £41 online .

Specs are :

Acer Aspire t180
Amd Sempron 3200+ But will be swapping out for a athlon 64x2 4000+ when installing the new GPU & PSU
On board GPU
250 watt PSU
Running a 80 Gb Sata Hdd & a Iomega 500Gb Sata - Used to be a external Hdd
Also running a thermaltake fan in the bottom expansion slot


Thanks in advance

Damien

Sorry but i cant afford a brand new computer as of yet . And i think putting £60-65 into it would make it a bit better at the minute. Its a fast browsing computer at the minute with 3gb ram , just would like to speed the graphics up . I dont see the need for a sarcastic reply, and i dont expect much at the minute .

Another question , would i be better trying to sell the computer and possibly buying a better computer with the added budget cost ?

I have found a 9600gt for £25 . Is this better than the Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 ?

Probably around the same, depending on models for both cards. The 6570 will use less power.

Can you even get a good PSU for cheap? I'm not familier with British sites.

you could try putting it on ebay but to be completely honest there is no value in it and its just not worth anything, in saying that new computers are significantly cheaper than they were when you bought that one. you could by a socket 1155 pentium for about 50bucks a cheap board for another 50, ram about 30 and then video card ?? case and psu probably another 60 bucks if you wanna be on a budget, reuse your hdd and odd and in your in business
