Default Need some advice.

Alright I'm looking to add to my computer but need some advice before I continue.

Nevermind I'm looking for a Blu Ray Burner.

Is this a solid buy for the price?

I'm also looking to upgrade my videocard. Its a Nvidia GeForce 9500GS I'm looking at this card http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...=21-63644356-2

How much of an upgrade is this card compared to the one I have?


Any other suggestions would be helpful.


My specs

Processor Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz, 2667 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

With 6 Gigs of Ram.

What power supply does your computer have? It's very important to know if it can handle the amperage these video cards require.

Which one?

The one that is 350 doesn't really say. . The one that is 630 is a Xion ATK Power Supply with 120 MM cooling fan and dual PCI express connectors.
