For 200, you could get a 7870 or a 660

The usual stuff:-

1) What make and model PSU do you have? The GT 620 uses very little power, but better cards will use a lot more. You may have to upgrade the PSU, depending on which graphics card you go for.

2) Is there plenty of room in your case for whichever card you decide to buy?

3) Which CPU do you have? No point in matching a great graphics card to a really weak CPU.

You would have to open up your case and look at the power supply.

According to one of the answered questions on the item page its a 300watt unit, not the seller doesn't specify a manufacturer so let's assume its junk.

Didn't you make a topic about this a while back?
You're going to have to replace the power supply. "300w"(probably ~250w) just isn't going to cut it for a $200 GPU.

No, I've never been here before. First time.


I could send the computer back right away and buy something wayyy better if you guys could point me in the right direction.

Um.. It would be a metal box with two metal boxes and some rectangle shaped silicon inside of it.

Eagerly awaiting FFXIV's inevitable failure. Even a fantastic game cannot withstand initial bad press & the long-dead MMO format. Sad but true.
