✔ Best Answer
"I also have a 450 W PSU"

Wattage doesn't tell us anything about quality. What is the make/model & amperage specs?

This is about the best you're going to do in the "less than $50" price range:

This is my power supply

Is there any other GPU you guys suggest? Even if it's above $50 I'll save money and get a good one that fits my computer.

Your psu is adequate. Above the 50 buck mark, the next step would be a HD6670 DDR3 card, then a HD 6670 GDDR5 card, a HD7750, then HD 7770.

Best prices (with rebates/free shipping) will probably run $65 to $110.

The Antec 450W PSU isn't horrible & is definitely better than the factory 220W unit. Are you looking for a gaming card? What are the rest of your system specs?

Use this chart as a guide:

A big problem you have is that your system uses a narrow case, so any card you get will need to be a low-profile one and this limits your choice a lot.

The card in response #1 is a low profile card.

"Low profile bracket is included in the package."

Sorry I don't understand what is low profile.

And this is my computer, all the specs should be here

If you need additional info let me know.

At this point I've realized that my computer is just not good and all I want now is to be able to play games even on low settings.

But what I'm understanding is that since my case is small I can only get low profile graphics cards? What's the difference?

Also do you guys suggest me replace other parts of my computer? Like the CPU or something?

Naw...leave your machine alone. The video card you choose will make something close to a real computer out of your purchase.

Frankly, I'd go with the card riider suggested in post #1 and call it good.
