Motherboard: M4N68T-M V2
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 Processor 3.00 GHz
RAM: 2GB
Windows 7
Current GPU: GEFORCE 210
Game DOTA2
Budget: Around HK$1000~
EDIT: 250W Power supply.

Im planning to upgrade my gpu to HD6850 since my current gpu cant handle dota2 as it only gives me around 40fps and <20 in teamfights which is unplayable.. Ive check the price of HD6859 and it costs around HK$870(http://www.price.com.hk/product.php?p=141757). Im not sure whether this gpu would best suite my rig. Can my rig handle this graphics card? I would like to hear your professional advice.Feel Free.
THANK YOU FOR READING.
PEACE#

why would you get a gen old video card? we are on 7xxx series now.
you have no included the power supply specs...since you have a gforce 210 I would suggest picking up 7750 as it doesnt require additional power from the power supply

Yea what power supply do you have right now? I suspect that you bought this computer prebuilt, therefore it has a crap power supply. You might have to upgrade that as well. Alternatively, you can buy the 7750 as others have suggested, but the performance won't be that great.

you should get HD 7750 because HD 6850 requires a good PSU :)  Also 6850 is old why no 7850 ? http://www.hwcompare.com/12079/radeon-hd-6850-vs-radeon...


Thanks for replying. 7850 is way off my reach of my budget.
I just want to know if my psu could handle 6850 then if it cant, then i would choose 7750 as all of u suggested.

My power supply as stated on the label is 250W. Would that be sufficient for 7750?? thanks
If its not sufficient, mind suggesting me a better power supply which i could buy? THANKS

Well your 250 W cant handle that 6850 thing ! If I were you I would choose this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . If your getting Hd 7750 then there should be no problem !
