You could get a Radeon HD 5750 or if on sale, an HD 5770. Or if you want to go Nvidia and don't really care about DX 11, you can choose a GeForce GTS 250.

Hello,

Regardless price, What will you prefer?
HD 5770 or Geforce GTS 250

If I had to choose between those two, a GTS 250. But if price was a non-issue, I'd spend the $50 extra and get a GTX 460. However, I can tell you the 5770 is a better performer than the GTS 250. At $150 (out the door) however, you'll have better luck finding a 5750 in which case, I would handily recommend the GTS 250.

But it's personal preference and if you can find a good deal.

EDIT: Actually, since you're getting a 480W Power Supply, I'd suggest the GTS 250 as it's not as power hungry.

What power supply is required for GTX 460?

Should I finalize GTS 250 or HD 5770? Please give us final suggestion, I need to finalize it today.

The GTX 460 1GB requites a minimum of a 450W power supply with a recommended 24Amps on the 12V rail. Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P3-1360-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card Ckick the specs tab to find out. Fabe

With the 480W, I would suggest the GTS 250. If you want to chance it and can afford it, the GTX 460 but the GTS 250 would be a solid bet in terms of power requirements.

IMHO any of those cards would be pushing your power supply to it's high limits. Not good, volts and amps might not be smooth. When you push a power supply to its high end it will create lots of heat and not preform as well as you will need. My rule of the thumb is a quality power supply with at least 100 w more than I need. There is no such thing as to much power supply, you can always use it later for upgrades.

Hello,

Look like mostly people are saying GTX460 is better, Please let me know if 700-800Watts power supply will be sufficient for it.

Regardless price, Please suggest me something that is good for my gaming pc.

Processor = Intel Core i5 750 2.67Ghz
Motherboard = Asus P7H55 LX
RAM = 4GB DDR3 Kingston
1TB Seagate HDD

Also, should I need to increase my RAM or processor too?

Waiting for some response.
