Dell Inspiron 560 Graphics Upgrade

I want to upgrade this desktop's graphics card, but I'm not sure what graphics card to get. I don't really want a super high performance one, but I want one that can run most games pretty decently. Here's the dell page for this Desktop:

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Sometime in the near future, this doesn't really matter
BUDGET RANGE: 50-150$ I would enjoy it to be more around 100$

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming for WoW, Dota 2, TF2, L4D2 and other games. I don't need it for games like Crysis.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Intel G45/G43 Express Chipset, Intel Integrated Graphics (They suck). I think I have a 300 Watt Power Supply, but it might be around 250W. I've seen other posts on this forum saying that the stock is 250W, however the dell site says it comes with 300W.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.97GHz with 2 cores, 8GB RAM

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I don't really have a preferred website. Newegg is fine, but it doesn't matter.


PARTS PREFERENCES: I have no part preferences.

OVERCLOCKING: Not sure? I don't think I need this.


ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I just want a decent card that can run my games better than this crappy Intel Integrated card can. I was confused on which card I should get so I came here. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks for reading!

  1. As long as you don't overclock the video card, you can get away with one of these (HD7750):
  2. That would be awesome. Are you sure my computer can handle it? I don't wanna buy it then have it not work.
  3. Yes, it will work. Just don't overclock the new video card. The Dell PSUs are actually pretty dependable and able to handle a load.
  4. Okay thanks a bunch for your help!
  5. You shouldn't get the 7750 2GB DDR3, what's important is the memory bandwidth and the 7750 1GB DDR5 is better and the only one to look out for, like this one :

    (same power drawn as a 7750 DDR3)
  6. Okay thanks for your insight. Is the this card more powerful than the 2GB 7750?

    The memory is faster on the second one than the one I recommended. Both are good choices.
