Hi Everyone

Honestly i dont know much about what to look for plus this is the first time i'm buying a graphics card so ... ! I wont really be overclocking my card because i'm a bit afraid i might damage my machine. I would also want my card to be silent ! Please tell me if my PSU wont b sufficient ! I'd want to play games like Assassins creed , GTA IV , Tomb raider , LA noire , COD , Battlefield .. 

My pc specs are as follows :

CPU : Intel core i5 3330 CPU @ 3 GHZ 

MOBO : Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 (rev 3.0)

PSU : Beetel 450W 

Ram : 4 gb (1 stick)

Hard disk : 250 + 80 gb

Chassis : iBall 441 Cabinet Compact Piano (Black Red)

Display : Samsung LED 19.5 inch (1600 x 900 Resolution)

What ever video card you buy be sure to check if your power supply can supply enough power and has the right connectors. The more you pay for a card the better the performance usually.

You will need to replace that before you can upgrade to a video card of greater power.
