So.. I've run into a little issue, apparently i bought too quickly at best buy, they didn't ask me anything about my computer and i realize now i overshot my graphics card i just paid for (HD 6750 700M 1GB DDR3 DP HDMI DVI PCI-E (Core Edition)) Now i realize i have a 250W Power Supply, i will happily upgrade it to 500W Like it requires.. BUT. Now i have a few questions..
I'm looking for better quality, performance, and FPS. What i have right now hasn't let me down in games i play such as RuneScape (Maximum Settings, 4x Anti-Aliasing, Bloom etc) and Sims 3 on max settings as well.
What's better for gaming, NVIDIA or XFX?
Stick with the XFX R6750 Core Edition i bought, and upgrade the power supply? Or Exchange it for something else?
I'm not familiar with NVIDIA cards, so i want to know what would be better than the XFX R6750 Core Edition, and around the same price i paid ($80~)
Also as i'm not familiar with Processors and whatnot, I don't really know how compatible that graphics card will be with my processor.
Overall, i'm not able to pay a maximum of over $90 for the graphics card, and i would happily take suggestions for a power supply under $60.. 500W is the minimum, more would be better I would assume so any suggestions there would be great!
