    Hi guys wondering whether you can help.

    I'm looking at replacing my stock graphics card for a better one. My requirements are 400w and less than £100. Is this going to be achievable? I don't want HD quality, just want to be able to play on decent settings.

    I'm more than a little lost.

    Can anybody recommend a card?

    An AMD HD7770 is probably your best bet. Though, you're risking it with 400W. You really want to have a more powerful PSU, which you could get for about £50.

    A GeForce GTX 650 is a little worse in terms of performance, but also uses less power - honestly though, even with that you'll want about a 500W PSU

    GTX650 and the gtx 650 ti in the latest ranges of gpu is your best bet, they need a minimum of a 400watt psu, but should say it shouldn't be a generic psu as they don't deliver what they say and can crash under load
