I just got a new computer and am shopping for a graphics card for gaming that will be optimized for my computers specs, will have enough resolution so things aren't pixelated (on a 50 Inch LCD TV), and I won't have to worry about problems like overheating.

 

My monitor is an Emerson 50 Inch LCD TV (I know...) and it's specs are:  1920 x 1080 pixels @60Hz

 

Even though I have the resolution in Windows and my current graphics card set to 1920 x 1080 pixels @60Hz, the text seems pixelated and things just look pretty low-fidelity compared to when I was using my old computer running Windows 8 using the same Monitor / LCD TV.  

 

So please, if you will, any helpful suggestions are welcome and what graphics card should I get?  I feel the graphics card in my computer is pretty basic although I feel my new computers specs are pretty nice (I may be ignorant on this subject though).  

 

You guys have a great day and here is the Speccy:

It depends on how many watts your PSU supplies. Your best bet would be a GTX 750 or 750 Ti as they do not use a lot of power, yet are pretty powerful, and inexpensive at under $140.

Thanks Computer Consultant.  What's the difference in the 750 and the Ti?  I do remember a while ago reading about the GTX 750 being extremely good for the price and that it was a good solution for cheaper builds that can still perform well.

The GTX 750 Ti is basically the GTX 750 but is a bit more powerful and has more features. I have a GTX 750 Ti with similar specs as your computer and it can actually play some modern games fairly well.
