Hi guys.
I have a dell Inspiron 530 with q6600, 4 GB ram, 500GB HDD, Intel X3100 and Geforce 8300GS. I think my PSU is 350W or 375W cause q6600 was only option for processor in my customized desktop.
Now i want to upgrade my graphic card and i am looking at HD4670 or 9600GSO or 9600GT.
Please help me and i don't wanna change my PSU.

Please reply fast.

For a 4670 you wont have to change your PSU because it does not require an external power connector and is very low in power requirements. It will run most games out there on high settings.

The QUad core eqipped I530 came with a 350 watt psu ( w/ pcie power ) and an option to upgrade to a 9800GT, no need to worry about any of the upgrades you are looking at
