Hi guys new to the forum and i have a problem....i know nothing about computers.....what i do know is i need to upgrade my graphics card....at least i think I do :confused:

With assassins creed brotherhood coming out in 2 days and Shogun 2 just released ill be spending a lot of time in the near future annoyed by the glitchy laggy screen, and seeing as I've decided to upgrade my monitor now I would like to do the same with my graphics card, I just don't know what i need, or what i can have.

I've got a budget of anywhere up to about £150 and my computer spec is shown below.....any suggestions would be most appreciated (450w Trust PSU, 2 spare PCIe slots)

Quick look over Newegg.com leads me to recommend the Radeon HD 6870. Asus makes this card in your price range, the Asus EAH6870 Radeon HD 6870. That's just a quick look though.

You'd certainly need a higher wattage PSU though.

You're very fortunate the low quality underpowered Trust PSU hasn't already done damage.
You will want a minimum 550W good quality PSU for a 5770 and more if you go above that.
Sapphire & PowerColor are good choices for ATI chipped GPU's.
