  1. i was thinking about this card but again i have no idea ><http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130433&Tpk=14-130-433
  2. The first thing you need to do is replace that 250 watt PSU. You can't run the graphics card you listed with that PSU at all.

    Also, what resolution is your monitor?


    I recommend the following PSU:
    Corsair CMPSU-550VX 550W - $79.99 after rebate ($89.99 before rebate)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139004

    As you can see it's a very popular PSU because It's sold out at the moment. They'll have more in a few days.
  3. how do you find out the resolution of the monitor :3
  4. Right click the desktop and select anything relevant to resolution, graphics or display. It's a little different between operating systems but you'll find it listed in there.

    The first thing the OP would need to do would be to replace the computer, the psu won't even come into play.
    The D3000 does not have a PCI-E slot.
