Hi all.

I have a older PC, who runs well, but my graffic card is outdated i guess (Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT)
My Motherboard is a Asus P5Ql-e and processor Q9650 Quad 3,0
4 GB of ram + Win7 32 bit.
Can anyone help, i have absolutely no knowledge of what fits in and what's the best to buy for gaming ETC.

Thanks!

Hello... what is your current powersupply wattage... what is your monitor resolution... what games are you/will you be playing? what is the space ( in inches ) from the back of case, over your PCIe slot, towards the front of case? ( maxium size of Card )... do you have an EBAY account/experience.

Hi.. Wow a lot of quistions :) 

Yep i have a ebay account, but i can't import anything to here, i live in Thailand, it's far to expensive.

Max output 240W. All output is extend to 430W max, it says

The current card hight are 10.5 CM: ( 4 inches +) and there really no more room left in height because of a big fan in the side of the cabinet.
From the back - the front there are 11.2 Inches (28 cm) free space!

Games: Call of Duty2, Far Cry 3 ....

Resolution is 1680X1050 currently on the screens

Hello... you have a very good CPU with a PASSmark of 4309... and you have room (length) for most modern size Video cards (11.2)... your wattage is ample for a 450 watt rated card, if you don't start overclocking it.
I would suggest a GTX460... GTX 560... in NVIDIA... not the TI too many watts.
ATI card with a PASSmark of 2500 or greater within your wattage and budget.

PASSmark of the 9500 GT = 290

Powersupplies are inexpensive and would allow you more choices... 500-600 watts

Next problem seems to be that i can't buy 4 or 500 series here in Thailand, only 600 are available :(  Would the 670 card fit in my com, if i change the power supply to a 5-600 W?

Best solution

Hello... yes a 660/670 will work... $$$... depending on your game usaged, be prepared to upgrade your powersupply to 500 or more... these cards will require two power connectors... be prepared with molex adaptors, if you use your present powersupply, a retail box Video card will come with one of them... take a close look to see if they are 6 pin or 8 pin connectors on the NEW Graphic Cards.

Take a close look at that too, when choosing a new PowerSupply, that you have the right number and type of Video card connectors too.

Check your Motherboard BIO's version too... and make sure you are up to date.
