Default new agp vid card for hp a350n

hey guys, i think its time to put a new card in, i got a nVidia 64mb card in and it dont do too well....


iv got a 250w psu, i REALLY dont want to goof replacing it (im capable tho)


I play MOH spearhead, Pacific assault, and i want airborne assault when it comes out.......

Im thinking anything from a 6600gt to a 7600-- from newegg

would like to keep it under $100, but i guess i would spend up to $150

If you want a new GFX Card your going to need a new PSU, there's really no way around it. Sorry to dissapoint you, but your going to be better off in the long and safer off as well.

Hehe you have the exact same pc as my old rig. I have an old 9600se 128mb in that, but it's not any good. Yes, if you wanted anything decent like a x850,x1600, or 7800, you'd need a new PSU for sure. But you've probably had that pc for three years just like me. It might be time for a new one.

Well firstly i recommend ditching that AGP, mobo, its useless now, but don't be so hasty u could always get a 6800 geforce from evga, i remember seeing it from tiger direct......... as for PSu, theres some good ultra and coolmax ones for like 50$
