Hello first off this is my exact computer




I purchased it a while ago and have just now decided to drift from intergrated graphics over to a pci. However i know i need to upgrade my power supply and would like a decent mid grade graphics card that could if possible of course support dual-tripple monitors.


I understand this isn't a gaming computer but i do mostly play video games and generally dont play on max or even close settings. i am however looking for alright graphics decent perrformance and currently the intergrated do fairly decent but i want to set up a second monitor. Let me know if you have any ideas, i'd like to go cheaper if i can but obviously who wouldn't give me your opinions on best choices for the computer and some mid range options as well.


I know some will expect a price range so lets start with 200 or less but don't hesitate with other options. please and thank you.


EDIT: also i have been upgraded to windows 10. and was purchased brand new from a different store i just used newegg to show what the specs were.!

Assuming that pre-built PC can take standard ATX power supplies, the SeaSonic SSR-450RM 450W would work.  With graphics cards, you have a choice, the mid-range ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 ZT-90301-10M 2GB and the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 950 GV-N950OC-2GD (rev. 1.0) 2GB, which is about 20% slower.

An R9 380 is just a little bit more expensive than the 960 but it performs better and has 4GB of VRAM instead of 2GB which will help deal with the high resolution of dual monitors.
