I have an older Dell Studio Desktop 540 PC (circa 2009) with a low end gpu/graphic card.* I want to replace it because I am having a lot of problems now if several windows/programs are running at the same time. But I don't know what new card would work with my PC. Dell has one which is supposedly compatible but is a little over my budget at 106 USD.  Can anyone offer suggestions on what would work in my PC? Thanks.

 

*Intel G45/G43 Express Chipset//Windows 7 Home Premium//2.33 CPU Ghz//7200 RPM HDD/6GB RAM

Here are a couple that would match up well to the existing parts, however you will need to check if your psu has enough wattage to support them:

hope this helps!
