According to this you have a 250w psu. You will need to upgrade it with whatever card you pick. If you are not doing any gaming then that 9400 GT will be fine. Also a good 350-400w psu from corsair, seasonic, pc power & cooling or antec. chrissom January 20, 2010 8:31:53 PM that's fantastic, might have a look for one thats a bit better for gaming, would only be very occasionally for red alert 3 or the likes but will definitely upgrade the psu too, cheers mate Related resources What processors work with EM61SM/EM61PM ? - Forum Em61sm/em61pm help - Forum What cpu can i fit into my acer aspire t180 - Forum Computer lockups while playing certain games. - Forum Best CPU around $80 for gaming? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
