I need a 500W PSU for my PC. Is there a good one for under 100 dollars?

This is the model of my computer:

After I upgrade that, I also want to upgrade my graphics card, so If you can, feel free to suggest a good and reliable card up $250. It doesn't have to be top of the line. I just need something good for games like Skyrim or World of Warcraft, hopefully on high or ultra settings. Thanks!

But a $250 gfx card with the 2.8GHZ dual core Athlon will be a slight waste of money. Unless you upgrade the processor, I'd suggest this:

You can use it with your existing PSU.

I should have further stated that the gfx card you need will depend on the resolution of your monitor. I was just trying to match one to your Athlon II dual core. If you have a lower res display you can get by with a smaller card like the one above. But if you game at 1080p, the GTX 650 will struggle at high settings. I didn't know if you planned on upgrading your CPU or not. If you do (and upgrade the PSU), move up to a faster card.

Also, this may seem like a longshot, but I managed to get a 660 TI for $200 almost even. just a thought, cause its a GREAT card to get for 200
