Graphic card upgrade

I need to replace my video graphic card, I would like to play GTA V on my pc.

HP Pavilion Elite HPE-112y
AMD Phenom II 4X 925
H-RS880-uATX motherboard

I know graphic cards are all about $$ and that I will have to replace my power supply.
I would like to stay under $200 for the card and $100 for the power supply.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to SevenForums
These are the recommended system spec's,
Code:
Recommended: 
  • OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
  • HDD Space: 65GB
  • DVD Drive
I'm sure you can find a new 4-500w or even 600w psu for less than 100.us
Card on the other hand for 225.us + might be shopping at ebay and taking your chance.

Hi,
One upgrade I'd suggest is to dump Mcafee and use Panda free
If you want to put your money into something useful buy Malwarebytes Premium instead.
Use the uninstaller tool,
How to uninstall or re-install supported McAfee products using the Consumer Products Removal tool

Personally, I wouldn`t go below 4 GB on a video card for todays games.

EVGA - Products - EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB SuperSC ACX 2.0+ - 04G-P4-3966-KR

Good card here for this price.
