Default Re: Be needing a new graphics card :D

You're definitely going to be needing a bit more $ since you're going to need to upgrade your PSU. 450W isn't BAD, but since you have $321 (converted your currency to dollar) to spend on a graphics card, that can easily buy you a GTX 560 Ti. Don't worry too much about crossfirex, your budget isn't enough and you can get a better setup in the end buying 1 GTX 560 Ti, OR one of the 7xxx series of AMD Radeon cards. The PSU is what's holding you back.

edit: Don't take my word for this, I'd wait for someone with more experience but this Power Supply looks crazy good for $100, and last time I was active around the, EarthWatts weren't bad. The only downside is that it isn't modular. Also has a 15% off promo code that ends 5/16/12.

That leaves you with $221 to spend for a graphics card, assuming that PSU is good.
