That 4650 will be perfect. It doesn't not cost much and won't kill your PSU.

Thanks everyone! That 4650 looks perfect. I was a little worried about the power supply, but sounds like this will do.

Yes it will do perfectly. It won't put any strain on the PSU. Enjoy your new card.

Actually, just installed a PNY GeForce 9400 GT 1024mb ddr2. This thing rocks. DVD and video look 100% better. Almost went with the 4650 but the 9400gt had all the adapters I needed. Next upgrade will be the power supply!

No, I believe that you should go for a middle ranged card such as the 7600 GT or so. Buying the 4850 will cost you the upgrades of other computer parts which is simply a waste of time and money.
