Gateway DX4831-05...I immediately updated the PS to a Corsair 750
It will be a one time purchase...so best buck for the $$$

I doubt I need a GTX 590...would even pay about $150+ for AMD or Nvidia...what ever you have an opinion will be helpful

If you think I am OK with the 315...let me know...it just seems like a cheapy to me

Hopefully your current monitor has one of those connection on that card. If you don't then you can buy a adapter.

Note that the 6770 is really just a rebranded 5770. What exactly are you doing with this graphics card anyway? If you are doing anything other than basic tasks, I would get the HIS H685F1GD Radeon HD 6850 1GB as it is around your budget and much faster.

6770 would do as my 5670 performs well for gaming.

If you just need a basic card, the 5770 or 6770 would do well.

Thanks to all for your help and time...the reason I asked was my Win 7 rating is 5.0....because of the video card (lowest rating)..... all other rate as 6+ or 7+

I probably will stick with the Ge Force 315 cheapy....it seems to be working well

Maybe? I can get the family interested for an upgrade for Father's Day (just joking)

Did not mean to waste anyone's time ...I will take a good look @ the info you sent...thanks again
