Hello! I was planning on getting this card, but I know I need to upgrade my PSU, as it is only 300 watts.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I don't know anything about PSU's and how to decide what is the right one for this card and my current system. I have an AMD dual core processor.

You can get a quality 450W PSU from any reputable company and do the job fine (corsair, PC power and cooling (OCZ) are my favourites).

If you plan to upgrade in the future and use teh same PSU you might want to look at something bigger. (650W or so for SLI)

That card uses 191 watts by itself at full load, or almost 16A. A smaller one would work, but I would choose a 500W-550W PSU for it, from Antec, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Seasonic, or Enermax. The BFG that IH8U linked is NOT the newer, LS-550 model I'm sure he meant, but an older one. I don't see the LS-550 at Newegg now, and the LS-450 might be a little small.
