I need a decent video card for my pc. Specs are celeron 3.2Ghz, 300watt psu, running win7 rc, pci and pci ex16 slots. pc is hp a1410y pavilion. Want to do mild gaming and be able to watch video without freezing. The current graphics on board are ati radeon express 200.

If you are planning on playing any higher than low, you are going to need to upgrade that PSU so you can upgrade the video card. What's your budget?

Wait a second he might get by without upgrading his whole comp. Familyman are you talking about Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004??? Or newer flight sim games?

if u want decent performance and price.
he specified that he only has $60 for a video card upgrade and he only does mild gaming, he doesnt need a 9800gt and a new psu for a celeron proc build :rolleyes:


And Based on the HP website, your comp has a psu with an 18a 12v rail, which is more than enough for a decent video card that your looking for:

Sapphire HD 4650
GDDR3 memory $53. My little brother has the same card but its only GDDR2 in my dell e510 (now his dell) and it runs call of duy 4 modern warfare on medium settings at 52fps.

This video card should be MORE than enough for you
