Default what to get?

i dont know what to get, a new psp slim, or a new graphics card for my PC.
i have a fat psp right now, i dont know when its going to break though, i kind of have a strip screw in there so i cant open my psp up if something breaks.
but then there are some games coming out for pc that seems fun, like mass effect, end war, lost planet Extreme Condition Colonies Edition, Grid, etc.
i want to play games in DX10 since the graphics are so much better, but then i probably be bored when i am out without my ps when it breaks...
so what should i get?
a psp or a graphics card? they are both about the same price.

New graphics card.

The PSP is working, just don't drop the thing and it will be fine.

I would go with the XFX 8800GT. They have great customer service and their products are top notch.

The 8800GTS would be a good choice, but the one you selected is actually slower than the 8800GT. You'll want to stick with the 512MB cards as they have the faster G92 core in them. For example: MSI GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB

You could shoot for about $40 - $45. The used ones are averaging that on eBay.

Don't try to predict your PSP's future! If it works now, it will work fine as long as you take care of it.

New graphics card gets my vote.
