Need help picking out a vcard
So, a couple weeks back, my computer broke down, I took it in, had it restored, cleaned, fresh windows installation, but apprently my vcard was fried.
Now, I am on an EXTREMELY tight budget, I actually have no money to spare at all, but I'm gonna have to do odd jobs around town for a few bucks here n there, sad maybe, but I'm out of options.
What I had before was an nvidia 8600gt 256mb, but I would prefer to not get this same card again, looking for something maybe a little better, but in the same price range. Obviously, some cards have better bang for their buck than others.
Now here's my problem, I know NOTHING about PSUs except that if it's not strong enough to handle the vcard, the vcard will poop out on you.
Since I don't know anything about it, I'll just copy down exactly what's on the psu:
Model: ATX0300D5WB Rev.:X3
Input: 100-127V~8A , 200-240V~4A 50/60Hz
Output: +12V - / 18A -12V - / 0.8A
300W MAX +5V - / 22A +5VSB - / 2A
+3V - / 17A
+5V& +3.3V 160W MAX
What I need to know is the best (or one of the best) video cards that will run on this power supply, and cost a maximum of $50 (It's okay if it goes over by a couple bucks with tax or whatever)
If it's important, my other specs are:
Intel core 2 duo E6550 2.33ghz
My current card is a Geforce 4 mx440 (lol, I know, I had it kickin around so I used it after my 8600gt fried)
windows vista home premium 32-bit.
I'm on a serious budget, but as you can see, I'm pretty much bottlenecked here. I need a card that will run Starcraft 2, MMOs like WoW, LOTRO, WAR, etc. It doesn't need to run dragon age or any of the newer games (although my 8600gt ran it decently on medium graphics).
I'm not really in a financial situation where I can just do my own research and go from there, cause if the new card gets fried, then I'm stuck with the geforce4 mx440 for a few months until I get a new rig, which won't be very fun.
Thanks in advance!
