That is very very true. PSU is the most important part in ur PC, and the card that Atomic Rooster showed u, im sure it will need more then just 250W

This one will work in your system and has a much nicer price: SAPPHIRE 100175L Radeon X1650PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X - $59.99 ($44.99 after $15.00 Mail-In Rebate)

It says in the specs it needs a 350W minimum, but they work well in most Gateway and Dell systems.
