    Well, the most intense game I'll be playing will probably CS:GO, as long as it runs that on decent fps, I'm fine with it.
    Why avoid any (G)DDR5 versions? My motherboard is too old and doesn't support them?
    As far as I know, the type of VRAM on a graphics card is completely invisible to the motherboard. The only problem I see with GT 710 cards at is that GDDR5 cards tend to be considerably more expensive than GDDR3 ones. (I doubt that there's a significant performance gain with GDDR5.)

    I worry a little with low-end nVidia cards because of their tendency to re-label old products. However, according to Wikipedia, the GT 710 is a "Kepler" card. The technology is nearly four years old, but it's still supposedly does DirectX 11.1 in hardware. That's not bad. It is also supported by the latest nVidia drivers.

    Now I changed my mind and I'm thinking about getting the MSI GeForce GT730K LP since it's for about the same price and I believe it's a little bit better than the 710. It even supports DIrectX 12. I read a review on amazon, a guy said he even ran the card on a 250 W PSU with no problems, though I know it depends on if you're gaming or not and on your other hardware, but I think I'm in the safe zone with my 270 W one.

    300W is for more breathing room for more powerful components. Yours isn't going to make that much power and 270W is safe.
