I need a graphics card.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking at getting a new graphics card that will be good enough to play Crysis 2 while still be compatible with my current rig and my upcoming gaming rig. I am using a sucky Dell inspiron 531. Here are the specs on the PSU:

DC power supply:

Wattage - 300 W

Maximum heat dissipation - 162 W

NOTE: Heat dissipation is calculated by using the power supply wattage rating.

Voltage - 115/230 Vac, 50/60 Hz, 7 A/4 A

What is a good card i could get that i can use on this rig and still be good enough to take over to my new build once I build it? Thanks

You'll need the equivalent of a 8800GT or GTS 450 to play Crysis 2 at its lowest settings.

Not sure if a GT 440 will run on that 300W since its a Dell PSU....

My friend got a GT 520 for his pre-built and it works well for him, however he doesn't play Crysis 2.
