Question Looking for a new Graphics card...

I currently Own eMachines Desktop PC, AMD Athlon II Dual-Core Processor - Walmart.com

And i need help with updating my graphics card.

I have a 500 Watt power unit.


Does anybody know a good graphics card that can fit into that small machine? i want it to be under $180.

Help would be nice!

Welcome to the forum. Your power supply is adaquate for alot of options, but you have a slim case, so your options are small.

Every card you can use will be under $100, so you got plenty. What are you doing with your computer? gaming or other?

Edit

looking around your best cards a gt 430 or amd 5570, both in around $70

You don't ned a new computer, so don't even listen to that.

It is a slim case.. but not that slim. Low profile cards fit there.. I've read its 20x19x7..
