Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a video card which allows me to play Counter Strike: Source and Team Fortress 2 with settings maxed out and an average of 60+ FPS. The thing is, I don't want to spend over 70 dollars for it. 80 would be pushing it, but I guess I could go that far, but 70 would be the reasonable price. I don't have too much money to spend.

Huge fans of both games, although I logged tons of hours into both of them, but I play them on such low settings that it's hard to thoroughly enjoy them.

I was eying this card since it has pretty good average reviews, but I'm not too good with figuring this kind of thing out. Please tell me the the graphical power of this card, and if it cannot be used in the way I want it to, please direct me to another card.


I also would probably play Sims 3 a lot, so I need a card that can play that pretty well, too. By the way, I already have a dual core processor, so any video card would work out alright I would think.

That card would be able to play CS:S and TF2 easily also Sims 3 too. What i would liketo find out is the wattage and amps of the current power supply and the size of the case.
