I currently have a Geforce GT 740 and want to upgrade but have budget restraints. Looking for at least 4gb and prefer to only have motherboard power consumption but only one power plug needed will not be a deal breaker! Any suggestions? (Wish I could afford the latest and greatest!)

I built my <$1000 PC in October and went with an EVGA 1660 Ti SC Gaming Ultra at the suggestion of my tech guru...who pretty much decided the entire parts list. It's about $270 including rebate, I'm pretty satisfied with it. It takes an extra connector from the PSU.

Is that a larger sized card? I don't have too much case room, with a mini atx motherboard.

It's not that big. It's pretty medium in every way I think. 2 expansion slots.

Here is how it looks in my Cougar MX-330

I think, the best you can get for that price is, just a 1050ti (i am not talking dimensions).

I used a 1050ti for quite a while, you can find them with 6 pins or just pure PCI power. I only replaced it because it was just a bit too weak to play titles like Monster Hunter. I think I was stuck around 45 FPS
