I have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ 2.01GHz, 2.00 GB of RAM, a 450w power supply. I want to upgrade my video card to something good for gaming, specifically SWTOR, and I know my current card isn't going to be enough.

What is the model of the PSU? The PSU will play a big role in what video card it will support.

Well, it depends on what video card you want to get. That PSU might be able to handle a real low power video card. It should be able to support a 5670, as emerald mentioned.

You don't want to put too much $$ into the video card, as it'll be bottle necked by the CPU.
