My old computer finally died out on me and I had a very minimal budget to build my new computer (although now I'm just going to go over budget at this point). I'm looking for a graphics card and need suggestions in terms of quality of card, compatibility, and if there's enough wattage from my power supply unit.
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) Klevv Neo DDR3
Operating System: Windows 8.1
Graphics Cards I am Considering:
(Highly considering number 1 here, the other two are more of a point of reference on my price range and willingness to downgrade my purchase. I'm wondering though if my system can handle the 4GB and superclocking though.)
2. Radeon XFX Core Edition Radeaon R7 240 2GB DDR3 PCI Express (approx. $90)
3. PNY GeForce GT 730 2GB DDR3 64 Bit Low Profile (approx. $80)
First, I am open to other suggestions of graphics cards and or places where I might be able to find them cheaper.
Second, I'm worried I might pick a card that won't physically fit in terms of height, width, and depth.
I'm going to play video games on my computer, but nothing intense. Most the games I'm going to play are at least five years old and I don't mind running them on the low settings.
So, I need some thoughts and suggestions. Does the PSU go well and have enough wattage to go with the any of the graphics cards I've listed? I'm really hoping to get a graphics card in at least the performance range of the GT 740, but if that cards not compatibility in some way I can go with others cards (even lower rated if necessary).
