Upgrading internals of pc need advice

I currently have a hp pavilion 6755a this is the motherboard with the following specifications Manufacturer: Pegatron
Form factor: Micro-ATX - 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches)
Chipset: Intel H67
Memory sockets: 4 x DDR3
Front side bus speeds: 2.5 GT/s
Processor socket: LGA 1155
Expansion Slots:
1 PCI Express x16
3 PCI Express x1
1 Half-Length MiniCard x1

My processor is an Intel Core i5 2400

I have 14gb of ram

my graphics card is an amd radeon HD 6450 with 1gb onboard memory and its absolute rubbish

I want to change my video card as well as my psu which is currently only 300w to a corsair VS650 the measurements all add up I was just wondering whether this would work as well as what graphics card should I upgrade to if i mostly play Diablo 3 and some other fps games but nothing that major mostly counter strike but I would like to run these games at max if not close to max so what grpahics card would you suggest? sorry for such a big question but I'd just like some advice and opinions on what to do here, any help is appreciated thankyou :)

    so how much are you willing to spend? counterstrike doesn't require an upgrade to play it. D3 isnt that gpu intensive either.

    If budget is around $200 for a gpu i would go for a radeon 7950 or if you like nvidia wait for price drops in november.

    Hey well i think $200-250 would be my budget for the gpu and yeah i guess diablo isnt that bad but i would like to run it at full settings and thanks for the quick reply!
  3. this would be pretty nice: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125414

    just make sure you can fit it in your case. the oem cases are pretty small and these are big cards

    Yeah that one looks really good! thanks for that and yeah I've been taking measurements down and surely things should be okay :) i'll definitely consider that one
  5. And thanks heaps :) my cpu and motherboard should be fine with the power upgrade though right? I'm just making sure X)
