I have a HP Pavilion p7-1054, and I added an AMD Radeon HD 6450 about the time Skyrim came out. It has served me well, but I now want to upgrade to play games like Arkham Origins, Bioshock Infinity, and AC4.

I want to order it right away, and do not want to spend a ton of money with Christmas coming up. Approx $150-$200. The HP only has 6 GB of RAM, so if it would make sense to update that and go with a less powerful card, then I would do that.

The HP only has a 250W PS, so I think that might need an upgrade as well...

The other hurdle is that my monitor is only VGA. LG 19EN33. I can probably get an adapter for that, right?

Here is what I am thinking. Do I have it right?

APEVIA ATX-CW500WP4 500W ATX Power Supply

SAPPHIRE 100358L Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

No to Apevia PSUs. Low quality / low amperage
About the cheapest PSU I would go with a corsair CX430
The GPU most likely includes a DVI to VGA adapter in the box.
