    I am looking into getting a new graphics card on account of the fact that my last one super heated and fried... Stupid fan failure >.>

    Anyway, I used to run a NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT

    The rest of my specs are:
    Windows Vista Home Premium (32 Bit)

    Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00Ghz

    3 Gigs of RAM

    I apparently have a 300 max wattage for my PSU. I was looking into getting a MSI R4670. Will I be able to run it? Also, let me know if you need any more information.

    The msir4670 looks like a decent card. If you choose this or any other card i would increase your power supply wattage .There was 1 article i read that the driver wouldnt load on vistax64, how true that is i cant answer.
