Please note that before purchasing an add on video card that the following must be considered;
Is the present PSU (power supply unit) powerful enough or will it also need upgrading.
What type of case do you have, full tower, mid tower or SFF (small form factor) this is important as you must make sure that there is enough room inside the case for the upgrade/s, upgrading a SFF type system can be difficult as they often use propriety components such as smaller and differing shape PSUs and they only have enough room inside the case for a low profile type add on card.


MB http://www.biostar.c...p?S_ID=615#spec

Please keep in mind the above information as the following card suggestion requires a quality brand PSU with a minimum 450W output and is only suitable for a mid or full tower case, the latter should not be an issue as the MB is an ATX type size which are primarily used in mid or full tower cases as they are too large for the SFF sized case.

For the budget available the best card that I could find http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

NB: As an asides can I ask that you update or conclude your earlier topic and not leave it hanging, thank you http://www.geekstogo...92#entry2305892

thanks for the recommendation! its a normal midi atx tower. regarding the power supply i am not sure, but it should be well over 450 watt, i will check that with him.

the evga seems to be a good choice, especially because there is $20 discount at the moment. i will tell him about it tomorrow right away :)
