    I would suggest you to go with the Nvidia Geforce gtx 750.Its the most powerful card that will run on your current PSU and is better than any AMD card in its price range($120)

    would this one be any good? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127703 its only 99$ and my psu is 480w
  3. I will probaby save some more money and go with 650 ti (around 130$) or the newest 750 ti (around 160$)

  5. If you're ballin' on a budget -- this might be a good card for you.

    welp I said screw it all and just went with the 750!!!!! 120$ off newegg and got free 2day shipping :) how much better is the 750 than the 650?
  9. OMG I PLACED THE ORDER AND NEVER THOUGHT.. WILL MY PSU RUN THE 750!?!?! its 480w
  10. 750 will work OK with your PSU. It is faster than 650 and in the same time uses less power.
    New tech is really miraculous! :)
