  1. Alright, I am looking for a new graphics card for my crappy pc that I have had for a number of years. I am a casual gamer that usually plays non demanding games such as Minecraft or TF2, so I am looking for a medium graphics card. my concern is if my computer will be able to handle such a graphics card.

    comp specs:
    2gb memory (dont laugh)
    processer: Intel core 2 CPU
    32 bit
    current graphics card: Radeon x1600

    Pls tell me what kind of graphics it could handle

    I'd say any of the current $100 graphics card would work. But then I don't know what size power supply you have.

    How do I check power supply?

    There should be a label on the side of the power supply with a max value.

    It says 100-240V

    I think he means in watts, there should be a wattage number on the PSU somewhere.

    With a 365W, it would probably be best to stay under $100. Choosing anything over $100, I'd recommend a 400W or better PSU.
