    Alright, so depending on the size of your PC. For example I have a "mini" type so I bought a "Low-Profile" graphics card. What kind of games do you wanna play? What kinds of stuff are you going to be doing? For me, I bough this cheap-ass GC for around $150 w/ tax. It can play any game basically on ultra or max settings with around 40-300 fps depending on the game. For battlefield 3 the max I've seen it run on is 80FPS on ultra. So the GC I have is this

    i dont know much of sizes but i got i think a mid tower then btw i want to play games at least med to high 30/40fps+ but i want to know if my motherboard/processor are strong enough to hold dem cgraphics card BTW i want the same as you but then saphire edition xD
    but whats the difference and what would be a better buy? :
    Amazon.com: Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR5 HDMI / DVI-I / DP PCI-Express Graphics Card 11202-00-20G: Computers & Accessories
    or
    SAPPHIRE 100357LP Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card - Newegg.com
    because they look different

    If you are installing drivers, then you won't lose anything.
