Question Compatible graphics card for my system

specs: Intel Pentium E6500 / 6GB DDR3 1066 MHz RAM / Asus P5G41C-M LX motherboard / G41 chipset /

Based on your lower-end specs, I would have normally recommended that you consider using the "Nvidia NOW" cloud gaming service, as it would probably be a cheaper alternative. However, while CSGO is supported, Nvidia NOW does not currently support FIFA. Am I correct in assuming that you're running at least Windows 7 and not Windows XP? I assume that Windows 7 is the minimum OS that Geforce NOW will run on.

What is your upgrade budget? Are you located in the US or other region? Does your monitor run off your CPU's integrated graphics, or do you have an existing graphics card? If so, what is it? What is your power supply's manufacturer and model number? There is no software that will answer the last question, so you would have to open up your PC case, and take a photo of the label on the side of your power supply that faces you.

Hi
Thanks for the answer.

I really dont know much about costs about graphics cards but im willing to pay the least i can. Im outside of US and i dont have a graphics card. This is the power supply i have in the photo below.

PSU mfg / model: ATake Atk-3500

Thanks for the photo. It's image quality is a touch fuzzy but if I'm reading the label correctly, the 12 volt rail has 17 amps. Multiply those two figures together and I arrive at a 204 watt output, not 350 watts (listed on the label).

You will definitely be looking at used graphics cards, and one that doesn't require any PCIe power connectors. Which website would you be prepared to purchase the graphics card from? Considering that your CPU is 12 years old, and your motherboard is from an era where it can utilize both DDR2 and DDR3 (yours is populated with DDR3), I wouldn't go any higher than a used GTX 750 Ti or possibly a somewhat lower performing GTX 750 (non Ti). Ti stands for "Titanium" edition by the way. Another popular option outside the US back in 2015 was the GT 730. It is much lower performing, but still should be a noticeable upgrade over integrated graphics.

Addendum: Your region, budget, and purchase source are pertinent information to your question. Many graphics cards would be an upgrade over having none installed at all.

Thanks a lot

Lastly, I found this in letgo. Do you think these are ok for me?

canerisguzar This video just released and I think that you might find it helpful, as far as educating yourself about graphics card performance comparisons. However, the vast majority of these cards would require that you upgrade your power supply, and therefore are not appropriate for your purpose, unless you have the budget and desire to upgrade your power supply.
