    Default Any Recommendations please

    I am looking for a graphics card available on pbtech.co.nz to buy for around the $150-$200 mark.

    My PSU specs are:

    The powersupply is this one http://www.aywun.com/ProductDetails.asp?ID=57
    AC input: Voltage 230 v, Current 4.0 A, Frequency 50-60MHz
    A1-3000 Max power 420W

    My mother board is:

    M4N68T-M v2 with AMD Athlon (tm) II x2 255 3.10ghz processor


    Thanks for the help

    Cheers

    For 150-200:

    Seems reasonable.

    I wouldn't trust your PSU.

    The X2 255 will be your biggest bottleneck - if you have a decent-ish card right now, don't bother with the upgrade.

    Is there anything under the 150 dollar price range that you can recommend? btw im using on board graphics right now and it's really annoying playing a low graphic mmo at 10 fps or less
    I mean I am looking for a graphic card which can fit my specs and play a game at a reasonable fps without lag. E.g Skyrim or Call of duty modern warfare 3

    cheers

    Under $150 the 7750 is your best option, requires no external power. If you're going up to $200 I'd try and get a 7770. As stated above though, I wouldn't trust your psu.

    Honestly, you will not see anything good from this. Will be a waste of money buying those games.
    MW3's minimum specs are better than you CPU - not by much, but just points out that you will have a terrible experience.

    Your CPU is just too old. Sorry.

    PBTech is same price + GST... Tell them to match price or something, do that for everything you buy.
