    Hello. I am choosing a new graphics card as I want to run more games smoother and faster with FPS around 60. I dont have a clue what I'm looking for and I'm also on a budget so looking for a cheap but good graphics card. Please help .Thank you.

    First of all, no one has any idea what hardware you are running. You need to post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact cpu, exact pw supply, etc, etc. There is a utility to help you; click Rules>Valuable links>System info utility and post the output here.

    Note there is a LOT more to a gaming system than simply installing a video card. Attempting to install a gaming video card in a big box ie hp, dell, whatever is very often an exercise in futility.

    Addition to what crjdriver said. It will help if you post what games, graphics quality settings, and resolution. Pre-built computers will always be your limiting factor for upgrades. Video cards require up to 600 watts or more as the recommended power supply, so pre-built computers don't have this. Usually, pre-built computers are for people that do office, web site browsing, and email. Gaming on these computers is just too much for them. Computers from HP and Dell may use proprietary connections for the power supply, so power supply can't easily be upgraded.

    Companies like NZXT, a computer case manufacturer, has pre-built computers that use end user components and NZXT provides a guarantee of the together components can render the desire FPS for the desired game. NZXT method of choosing a computer based on the application is the best way to go. They are few companies that do this.
