Default Graphics Card

Hey Guys,

It's been awhile, how's everyone?

Anyways I've decided I want to play Day Z, I haven't really gamed since 2008.

My current rig is:

Core i5-3470 Quad @ 3.20/3.60Ghz
8GB DDR3 some high end kingston ram
128SSD

I just use on-board graphics because I am not gaming.
What would you guys suggest for me to buy? Something budget please!

Thanks a lot,
Preacher

But honestly, other than one of the dual gpu cards, your system will handle any card you can afford, as long as youyr power supply is the right size.

So What psu?

PSU is a Seasonic 520W. It has the graphics molexs. Budget is up to 400-500 ILS.

I'll be buying from this site, here's an English version K.S.P Computers Israel

My parents are going to be in NYC / Manhattan if any of you know a PHYSICAL store they can go to that could work too.

Thanks!

The 7750 far out matches the 640 in every category.
