If youve got one pci-e x16 slot go with the 7900gtx or the 1900xt, if you play more opengl games 7900gtx, direct x 1900xt.

I'd say the 7900GT(X)/X1900XT(X) will do a fine job. Just make sure your PSU can handle the card.

Open the case find the make,model number or wattage 400w ,500w, 520w ect. look it up at newegg or whatever and get specs from the description when you find your psu. If it's remotly any barand name newegg or any other e-tailer shoud have it.

300W ain't gonna cut it mate, my guess is the 12V+ is around 14A. You need a new PSU as well.

People like OCZs, prefer Tagan myself. Lets hear some other options as well. People?

I'd recommend mine but from what I've read 1 out of 5 of them are DOA.:thumbdwn: Glad I wasn't one of those.

Can't really go wrong with PC Power and Cooling though.
