Video Card Replacement?

Information  Video Card Replacement?
Hey guys, these are my current specs, and I was wondering what would be a good graphics card that is UNDER about £80 pounds. I currently have the integrated ATI Radeon HD 4250, and it's doing pretty badly, averaging at like 15FPS for New Vegas (On medium), and like 30FPS on WoW (Ultra), and around 30ish FPS on Portal 2 (On low/medium custom).

Specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)

Processor: AMD Athlon™ II X3 450 Processor (3 CPUs), ~3.2GHz

Memory: 4096MB RAM
Page file: 1991MB used, 5683MB available
DirectX Version: DirextX 11

Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4250 (1915MB)

Motherboard: Asus M4A88T-M




Thanks! I have a trial for Aida64 that I downloaded if you need any more info... Also, hopefully the graphics card should be powerful enough to run New Vegas on high graphics, with nice framerate, and something like Arkham Asylum on max, with high FPS. Oh, and Empire Total War.

I'd say a Radeon HD 5750, depending on what your Power supply is though?

Indeed, and it's not just the wattage that counts when you look. Check to see if your PSU has the 6 or 8-pin PCIe power connectors. If it does, it can definitely open up your options for higher-end graphics cards.

If im reading this right...80 British pounds sterling = 132.00 US dollars or so?

As mentioned check PSU specs. Lame PSU=5670 1 gig ddr5

If you have a decent PSU then 5770 1 gig ddr5 is the bare minimum imho.
