I am looking for a cheap graphics card for my pc or better call it a display adapter because i am not searching for something to play crysis 3 at 8k 500fps but just direct x 11 and a hdmi output card , my motherboard has a PCIe x16 slot in which i have an 8400GS installed which struggles for basic tasks so i was looking for a cheap solution

My

Best Answer:

Fredrich: You haven't stated your budget, and also what basic tasks you are requiring I would suggest a basic entry level card. Make sure you choose a card that does not need an additional PCI-e connector, nor a dual slot that may take up too much spacer
here is a link to cards that are DX11 compatible and have an HDMI output

Make sure the tabs on the left side are checked for HDMI output and DX11 compatible

Depending on which country you live there will be similar sellers. If you want something a bit faster go for an entry level gaming card such as the Nvidia GTX 750 which will outperform your 8400GS considerably

Other answer:

Fredrich:
We also need power supply information as brand and model or at least 12V amps and total wattage.
And, the 8400GS sometimes is in low profile for thin computer cases and desktop rather than tower PCs.

You would likely need a card that does not use a 6 pin PCI connect to the power supply, instead getting all power from the socket.

Are you in the USA?
Bargain priced R7 240
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…
It's only 30 watts, is low profile ready.
It's a low performance version of an R7 240, but at $15 after rebate is still about 4x your 8400 GS.

You would be waiting for the rebate, but it is being sold, after rebate, at a price lower than the cost to produce the card.

If non-USA, I need to know the country for your shopping as best card to suit you.
It is $43 to $45 to beat it in the USA.

William:
Have a list of all PCIe x16 GPUs with less than a 75W TDP, at least 2GB VRAM, and less than $100: http://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-c…

Take your pick. Since you're not gaming at all and just need to connect a monitor, any one would honestly probably do the job.

AMD RX 480 is your best choice.Is is the best bang for the buck CPU

The 750ti would be perfect
