Hi I would like to purchase a new graphics card on my computer because I play minecraft and I only get 30-40 fps. So I have been looking at some graphics card and I was wondering if this one would work on my computer? ------->

My computer specs are:

8GB DDR3 memory

AMD phenom II X4 690T CPU

and this is my current graphics card

Integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200

My deskop amazon.ca link:

Thanks!

You'll need a new power supply to run even the low power 7750.

Well also do you have the right PSI slots for that? but you will HAVE to upgrade the power supply no doubt

in that link you supplied under "customer reviews" i found this:
I ripped out the paltry 250w power supply and added a 775w Thermaltake modular PS (a modular power supply is definitely needed due to the limited space in the case). Then I installed two additional 500gb 7200RPM hard drives, as well as an EVGA GTX 560 Ti 2gb graphics card. After install and configuration, there was a marked performance increase...with Windows 7 showing a 7.8 experience score for graphics. The machine also runs very cool.

For gaming, I can now enjoy playing games at full maximum or near max settings with 1920 x 1080 (i.e. 1080p) resolution (as an example, the graphically intense and jaw-dropping beautiful Witcher 2 runs flawless at absolute maximum **except** I keep 'ubersampling' turned off). I really am quite impressed.

If you are going to attempt a similar upgrade, please be aware...

The case is small, but with careful planning, everything will fit as expected and I experienced no unusual hiccups during installation (I cannot vouch for longer graphics cards (10+ inches), but the 560 fit like a champ).

so yes it can be done. it obviously has an open pci-x slot

Well that answers that but he still doesn't know the right PSU to get I'm sure he has a budget so I don't think he wants to spend 50 just on a good trustful modular power supply without getting his GPU which is also 100

Ok thanks so I just need a new PSU? And is the sapphire radeon 7750 a good card?

Well I'm just gonna go ahead and give my answer if want to get a modular power supply and not worry about space then get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but if you want more power for the same about and non modular then get this http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... . Either way your gonna need one of the two because that card requires a 400w power supply and with both power supplies you get a little more power just in case it's needed. But the card you have is good and will work and will max minecraft no problem with 40 to 50+ fps. I really suggest those to because skipping and getting a cheaper power supply and mess your whole computer up if it's not built right and antec and corsair are good company's.

the guy in the post said he needed a modular psu...those arent cheap. heres my suggestion on a nice upgrade. not too expensive.

a great corsair psu with modular plugs for 59$

http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=74900&vpn=GV%2DR777OC%...

and a 7770 on sale should push minecrtaft well past 50+ fps

That's the power supply I suggested him and the one I gave was cheaper... But as far as the card goes is up to him but still I think the 7750 will do just fine for what he wants

Also you can still get one of the power supplies we both recommended the card still only needs a 400w power supply

How much better is the gtx 650 ti compared to the 7770?

It is worth the extra 30 in my opinion if you don't want to ever worry about your fps dipping or anything I would get the gtx 650 ti honestly

Should work fine but do keep in mind like arich5 said "If you are going to attempt a similar upgrade, please be aware...

The case is small, but with careful planning, everything will fit as expected and I experienced no unusual hiccups during installation" you card will fit just fine but just be careful you should be fine with the card and power supply your getting
