Default Need help upgrading - Novice

Hi guys,

I am looking to upgrade my 2 year old computer's graphics card and PSU.

My computer case will only fit a card under 8in or smaller, it is very crammed inside there which limits my shopping. I am looking to spend a maximum of 350$ but most cards at that price are over 8in and will not fit.

Also I have a 385W, fairly weak PSU that I want to upgrade to accommodate a more powerful graphics cards.

Basically, I don't know where to start! Any recommendations?

Can we know what model computer you have? Or did you build it yourself. We also need the computers full specs.
