Question

graphics card upgrade (gaming)

I have a Acer Aspire M3970 and want to upgrade from my AMD Radeon HD 6570, my budget would be $150 at most, not looking for the best possible graphics card, just one good enough to run a game like Overwatch on high.

Processor: Intel Core i5-2310
CPU: 2.90 GHz
RAM: 6.00 GB
PSU: 300W

Gpu

Shop for a gtx 750 ti.
I see them for about a 100 bucks.
It's a small bump up in watts but a big bump up in perf.
As to Overwatch on high I have no idea.

If your going to get serious about gaming do consider an upgrade to that psu.

I'm unsure how much a bump the 750 would give.

Compare your new and old GPU at GPUBOSS.com.

Also, it should run on high. But you didn't reveal if you wanted to hit a certain frame rate. For that, look to reviews of the card and same/similar games for each card.

I use this list while shopping then google up reviews for card, game and hope someone ran it on that card. -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107.html

The PSU is too light for much more than the 750.
