How large is your PSU, physically? That is, length, width, height?
What does it say on its back under 12V?
How long is your current video card?
How much room is left there? That is, would a 10" long card fit in there instead?

Ideally, you'd get something like StealthXStream 600W and HD 4850, but you need to make sure they fit first.

It depends, what is your budget? a site I have always liked is newegg.com witch has a lot of cards, but it depends, again, if you want to but them new or not I guess, how good of a card do you want?and what are the uses of your pc and stuff?
