What rig are you putting it in?

What's in there now?

What's your PSU looking like?

Can you save up another 50 and at least get into the GTX460 range?

I guess I would. I am receiving a spare pc pretty soon. It has a dual core and PCI-e slot in it. But it originates from an office so it still has an onboard GPU. I wanted to upgrade it with an as good as possible budget gaming graphics card.

I'll sell you my Zotac GTX460 for $100. I just upgraded my rig and have old parts now.

460s often go for $100~110 after rebates if you can wait around for a deal. Alternatively, if you sign up for restock alerts you can get one of these 465s that will most likely unlock to a 470.

An office computer....so its probably a prebuilt, like dell, ibm, hp?

You need to check the specs of the system you are buying before you shop for any upgrades. If you don't, then at the least you will be forced to go through a return process, at worst, you will be stuck with hardware you can't use.

No offense. I'm sure you are a standup guy and everything, but to the OP, I wouldn't recommend buying something from someone with only 2 posts.

OCN has a market place set up and you need 35 rep to sell stuff for a reason. Circumventing that is frowned upon.

Guys, it's an unkown spec work station from an office...
Without specs there's not much good in recommending anything (sorry OP), it will likely require a card that only draws from PCI power though.
