I use 1024 x 768 resolution. I can buy extra ram. Please recommend compatible graphic cards.

BTW, how is the following graphics card?

A. Yes


For $80 you can pick a 6850 second hand easy or maybe a 7770 but even then it would bottleneck the graphics card but then you would have to upgrade.

To be honest their are better upgrade plans if you can tell me what you are going to use the computer for?

You can use pretty much any GPU on the market depending on the PSU and budget.

What is your PSU? That 5450 is going for how much?
At such a low resolution, gaming will depend heavily on the CPU.

Suggest you also pick up an aftermarket cooler and OC your 8400 a bit.

Thank you all for your replies, very helpful.

I don't want to buy graphics card for playing games... I like to play games but right now I am in financial mess so looking for some ways to make money.

Hence I want to buy graphics card to test coin mining and see if it can make any money for me. It's just a test so I don't want to buy higher hardware etc.

Here I have found good cheap cards:

HIS Radeon HD5450 Fan 1GB DDR3 ATI PCI E Graphic Card (H545FR1G)
http://www.amd.theitdepot.com/product_HIS-Radeon-HD5450-Fan-1GB-DDR3-ATI-PCI-E-Graphic-Card-%28H545FR1G%29_P12595.html
Price: INR 2125/-


HIS Radeon HD6450 Fan 1GB DDR3 ATI PCI E Graphic Card (H645F1G)
http://www.amd.theitdepot.com/product_HIS-Radeon-HD6450-Fan-1GB-DDR3-ATI-PCI-E-Graphic-Card-%28H645F1G%29_P12593.html
Price: INR 2695/-

I like the 2nd card HD6450. I have FSP PSU... 550W. Will that card work with my motherboard and PSU? What do you think?

Please help.

I wouldn't ever recommend getting a dGPU with just DDR3. GDDR5 provides more bandwidth.
