Just to clarify, I'm pretty sure he means PCI-Express (PCI-E). Any idea what kind of power supply you have?

I'm guessing you're having an OEM PSU. Get a Corsair VX550 with a GTX460.

Well best way is to open computer and see what it says on it - Brand, Model, Max Wattage. If it's some OEM computer it is probably only like 300W which would limit the best graphics card you can run. IN that case, might want to decide if you would be comfortable replacing powersupply with something better.

Yep it will need replacing.


This is a good cheap PSU that will work.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...corsair%20430w

But you can't put a high end graphics card on it, but it does allow you to get a better card now.

That plus a GTX 560 Ti would be great.


Otherwise spent more on a PSU, like this that will run pretty much any single card right now.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-031-_-Product

And a 460. GTX 460 that is. Which can be found here.


GTX 560 Ti

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-565-_-Product

GTX 460

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130570


Or you can look on the OCN Marketplace for video cards here and get a used card cheaper, and you can get a PSU used but cheaper if you so wish. Which will be more bang for the buck.
