    What video card I get?

    So, I bought this PC in January of this year. It's got 3GB of RAM and 256MB of VRAM. See, at the first look, it's a good PC. It's got 500GB of hard disk memory. But there's one problem: it hasn't got Pixel Shader. Yeah, big deal right? It sucks. Dam, I can't play much games. So, I'm buying a new video card. I'm not spending 500$ on a video card, though. So I just wanted some recommendations. I'm looking for something between 50-60$. Thanks.
    God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.

    Download Speccy and give us more info if you want proper help. Otherwise for occasional gaming on low gfx settings I would recommend something like ATI's HD5550 (should come in at around 60 - 70 bucks afaik) and it has dx11 support and such.

    If you don't mind not having new technology you might want to get an older card with a bit more power though.

    I think he'll be better off with the HD5550 though, why buy an old card when you can get a new one? /

    Yeah but still, why the 9000 series? The 200 have cheap refreshes and 300 / 400 aren't that costly (at least the low-end ones).
