    Default Help with computer upgrade >.>

    Whats a good graphics card that'll play most games on medium settings for under 100 bucks and requires under a 300 watt power supply?

    There isn't one. And if your PSU is that bad, chances are your entire PC is really bad and you just need a new computer.

    I know you don't want to, but get a new psu, a crappy psu can cause all kinds of problems, costly ones at that.

    I've just looked, and there are a considerable amount of PCI cards.

    No half decent card will work with your PSU.

    Yep. At the very least, you would need a 450w PSU, and even then you would probably have to find a card that doesn't need too high a supply.

    Plus, I don't even know if a 300W PSU would have the connector required for video cards.

    Indeed...you'll need a new PSU to get a better card. My 350W PSU ran a 6600, to put things in perspective.

    My 300w PSU ran an Athlon XP 3000+ with a Geforce 6800GT. But even the 6800GT would be pretty much useless now.

    My x800 wouldn't even work well on a 300W PSU. And its fucking ancient.

    Just buy a new PSU and the best card you can afford. They really don't make anything less than 400W's now.
