I need to get off the onboard video and the BFG Geforce 7300GT PCI-E card is in my price range. I know it is not top of the line but its gotta be better than the intel gma 900 onboard. I want to just play Doom 3, flatout 2, and GTA San Andreas. I am not a heavy gamer just like to play when I get a chance. My computer specs are in my signature. I would like to know if you can tell me if there any problems with this card or if you have a better suggestion in the price range of sub $100.
Any help would be appriciated.... thanks in advance.
Also, I am replacing the power supply with an antec 400W that has the necessary amps on the 12v rail, which is why my budget is tight.

The 7300GT is a nice budget card. The Galaxy and Palet brands each have a killer overclocking model.
Iv'e got a 300 watt psu also with only 19amps on the 12v rail. I'm running a BFG 7300GS 256mb because it calls for 18 amps, the GT version has got to be about 20amps. Make sure you know your 12v rail.
a 7300gt wont use 18A, its just recommended to be on the safe side.
Dont go for ANY 7300 GT 512RAM sounds nice but it only has a 64 bit. So you will get some serious bottleneck issues. If your willing to spend 150+ you can get a great 7600GT which will run any game good and is a current favorite of most gamers and even tom's hardware gives the 7600GT its highest praise.
