I agree with the 400 watt deal. If your card is just about running on a 250watt (i'm surprised), 500watt would be overkill

GeForce 6200 GT - This card would be fine for playing games on by the way at around low/medium settings. Now, if you wanted to run at Medium/high settings in games, try looking for the 6600 GT which costs around 170 in english pounds, so about $210 I would think.

That card would give you some great performance boosts!

I hope this helps

Be careful with what you buy especially the PSU because a bad one can bring down your whole system.

And never buy PSU's used because they are already old and when they fail, they usally take most of your system with it.

I was thinking about http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...942&pfp=SEARCH, or http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...509&pfp=SEARCH and for a video card maybe one of these http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...665&pfp=BROWSE.

Sound good now?
