  1. Hey I'm new here so I bought a computer from newegg long time ago:

    I want to know what graphics card I can get to replace the crappy one that came with this computer because it's no good.

    Please help me pick a graphics card, I also have a 450 W PSU I can replace if the graphics card need higher power.

    my price range is 50$ or under.

    Unfortunately, you don't have very many options if your budget for the card is $50. I think your best bet would be to save up some more money. What did you want to do with the better GPU? Did you intend to play any games?

    Eh, $50 may get you something that'll play games on LOW, and you probably won't need to upgrade PSU either (comes with 220W). But, it's a risk..

    As mentioned above, tell us what you're planning to do. Also, what screen you have.

    Is this case a low profile case and only supports a single wide card slot for graphics. If so this narrows your opportunities even more.

    Newegg search for Low Profile Cards

    CCASystems TS Member is what I would personally suggest given your criteria. It's a little more than you wanted to spend, but comes close after rebate. If the $50 mark is truly a must then this would be my choice -

    A 7750 is going to be the top card for your system, given the low profile and iffy power supply. It's also the most powerful card that doesn't require external power. would be such a card.

    What other card do you guys suggest? Even if it's above $50 I just want a good GPU, I'll probably save money for it.

    I'd probably go for one of these cards for your PC on a $50 budget. I'm more of a nVidia fan, but AMD has better selection of cards under $100

    You probably cant game on both monitors, and you will probably get bad frame rates when you are recording. The good news is that the games you play arent that demanding, so they will be fine being played on a low end card (not at max settings though).
