Default video card and psu

Hey All!! I am a newbie and glad to be part of the forum. My son needs a upgrade for his puter. He has a 6200 agp video card now and a generic psu that came with his case. I want to get a 7900gt video card and was wandering which psu i should get. Here are his specs now.


AMD Athlon64 3000+ (1.8 ghz)
Asrock 939Duel Sata motherboard
PNY 2x512mb pc 2700 memory
Maxtor 80gb 7200rpm IDE HD
GeForce 6200 agp video card
Onboard Lan and Sound
Generic 400 watt psu[/FONT]

Thanks for the help

Does the Mother Board have a PCI Express slot?

Also, if what he's playing requires a 7900GT, you may want to get more RAM.

Yeh if he's playing on WoW you may need to get some some better RAM, Maybe 2gig of some stuff, sure the people on this forum can point you in the right direction, not an expert when it comes to memory!
