Suggest good graphics card?

I am using Nvidia Geforce 7025/nforce 630a, which is very old. 95% of games doesn't work properly on it. I have to play games in less resolution(below 800*640). Suggest me good graphics card below 2000rs or $45
. I can increase my budget upto $60.

processor:amd athlon II X2 255 @3.10ghz
Motherboard:GA- m68mt s2p am3.

Though my processor and motherboard is relatively low end, i want to play atleast fifa 11 or game released in 2011. Please help? Thanks!

You'll struggle massively with such a low budget.
Latest games require new tech, and don't tend ti scale down well to older hardware.
Maybe the second hand market is best, might pick up an AMD 5650 or 5750 for around that price. Probably a big ask though.

Find $100 and your in a better position, as buying a cheaper card now will mean as soon as tech moves on you'll be in the same position as you are now.

Ohh.. $100 is looking tough for me. in my country india, $ prices are increased badly ($1=55rs which was two months before $1=43rs) i hope they will come down soon. Still suggest good card, i will try to increase my budget.

Newegg doesn't ship to India, but is still good for suggestions Newegg.com - PowerColor AX5570 1GBD3-H Radeon HD 5570 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Needs a 400 watt power supply.....It's way better than what you have got, but still might not do what you want...What is your screen resolution?

It's not going to be great, but if you lower the quality it should work fine....

If you're not concerned with graphics quality and simply want to be able to play a game then look into a lower end Nvidia card. You can pick up a brand new GT 520 for $30-$50 depending on the memory and manufacturer.

I just a built a PC with one of these in it for a customer and he has no problems with playing games, granted you won't be turning up the in-game video settings to the max with one of these but it'll get the job done.

If you're more concerned with getting higher quality visuals then I would suggest looking for a previous generation GTX series card like a GTX 260. You can probably pick one up used for anywhere between $60-$80 on ebay.

I'm aware but I had to keep a budget in mind so I suggested something brand new that was within the price range and wouldn't require a potential power supply upgrade. which may or may not be a factor. Then I chose something on the higher end that was within the price range if it was purchased used, it ultimately depends on what it will be used for and whether or not video quality is a top priority.

However, a more midrange model that competes with the 5570 would be the GT 240 and given the choice between the two, I'd go for the Nvidia
