hi all im a little bit noob and i think that i need some help to upgrade the cpu and the gpu of my old pc, i have 150 dollars of budget.
specs:
model: acer aspire m5802/m3802
cpu: intel celeron dual core e3200 2.40 ghz
gpu: intel gma x4500
ram: two gddr2 -800 2gb 128mx8 1.8v ep
mobo: acer gt43-t v2 http://
psu: input 220-240v /3.15A 50hz output 250w max
the cpu that i want to upgrade is the q6600, and for the gpu i was thinking for a 8800 gt or a gts 250.
now my questions are:
what psu should i get?
the q6600 consumes 40w more than my e3200 (65w) and a gpu needs 150w
will the q6600 fit in my mobo cuz the socket its the same as the e3200 but the lithography is bigger, 65 nm from the 45 nm.
and will fit one of those gpu in my mobo?

so what are your suggestions

tbh, you would be better off saving up to build a better PC. To play Crysis 3 with 'playable' FPS, you would want to spend at least $150 on the GPU alone.

A quad-core CPU is recommended in addition to a minimum of 4GB DDR3 RAM
