New graphics card in older Acer PC with 9600 gt. Need some help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an older Acer aspire M5640 from 2009. The CPU is a Q8200 2.33 GHz with no option to OC. The geforce 9600 gt that came with it has broken, and I need to replace it with something else, preferably with something a little better.
My question: What is the best GPU I can put in there without having the CPU become a major bottleneck? The most important thing is that I get a new card, at least as good as the old one.
PS: This is my first thread. Budget around 100 dollars, 150 tops.

CPU : Intel Quad Core Q8200 2.33GHz 4MB
RAM : 4096 MB DDRII 533/667
Harddrive : 2 x 640GB 7200 RPM SATA
GPU : NVIDIA 9600GT 512MB/1919MB DVI-VGA-HDTV-DX10
PSU: Silver Power SP-SS500 500W PSU
