Windows 7: Need advice with GPU upgrade

Need advice with GPU upgrade

I have a nvidia 9600GSO 384mb ddr3, i would like to upgrade it, but my budget goes only up to 100 euros. Could anyone suggest a nice GPU that would fit into my system and won't require a PSU upgrade? I know this one is a little old, but it sure is a lot better than my present GPU, nvidia 9800GT gold edition.

Btw. PSU is a Platinum 400w.

Hello there, 4eyed!

I'm thinking about GTS 450 or GTX 550 Ti, but i don't know if it's going to be "stable" with a 400w PSU, even when i don't know if that's a generic brand because i can't find it online, only one brand called "Zebronics" and they have a "Platinum Series" but... can't tell

Either way, the GTS 450 or GTX 550 Ti are around the same price tag: 95 ~ 100€

Here: Palit GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Card with Nvidia 3D Vision Ready (1 GB, GDDR5, PCI-E 2.0): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Good price. Good card. Good deal

Yes, it is a zebronics PSU. My bad. Anyway, judging by your thread ( Planning to upgrade your Graphics Card? Read First... ), it should work . Thanks, it really looks like a good GPU. The biggest problem is finding a PC store that sells it in Serbia...

Ofc i can, but it will take about a month if i order it @ amazon.de I think i'll find it faster, and if not, i can always go to Belgrade (2 and a half hours away ).
