what card, low power

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok,
my friend has a matx mobo, an amd 6400, and 3 gigs of ram on a 250w psu.
He wants a new graphics card, but he doesn't want to spend over 100 dollars.
I have recommended the 4670, but i wanted to know if there was a better card for that price that could still run off that psu.
Btw he has a 1680x1050 monitor

I too would recommend the 4670. Don't know of any other card that will perform decently with 230W.
