u mean u won't play any games or just a little games?
If u won't gaming at all then your card(9400GT) is more than enough... :) 
As long as your mobo has PCI-E x16 slot then u can use any pci-e graphic card.
About PSU, just open the case and see it for yourself, we must know the detail about it.
Last, how much do u want to spend?

Which M3A78 do you have ? M3A78-T or M3A78-EM ?
The first one has 3 PCI-E 2.0 slots(Dual x8 or Dual x16 or Dualx4 or Triple x8/x4/x8)
So you can use any PCI-E 16x cards on this motherboards.

oops hit wrong reply button,..I built this system for hardcore gameing and my main problem is the 9400GT driver is it wont install in the 64bit system, i bought the opperating system from newegg, my driver is a sparkle 9400GT , I tried everything possible to get that driver to install ,no way.So I installed the windows pro 2000 32bit system, and the driver installed perfectly....Now as far as games go most great games call for windows 2000, thats what the 32bit is......64bit is windows 2003, and if u read the installation lable on games like farcry, crysis, stalker, prey,quake, crysis warhead,lost planet,section 8,halo .....to name a few,they call for windows 2000, not the 64bit 2003 system, the problem i think is my grapic card wont install in windows 2003, thats why im looking for the BEST grapic card i can get for the m3a78 mobo that Will install, then i,ll put the 64 bit system back in an the imulator for games will probably play the windows 2000 games I dont know....
worth a shot...........ps I bought the box from allpczone in 2008...the PSU is 500watt
the mobo has no other numbers or letters behind the m3a78, i have the manual for the mobo, its a straight m3a78........no T or EM..... no nothing. So thanks for ur replys on this.....Which card do you guys recommend ? I figure for what it cost to build these a excellent grapic card is a must..........so im open for any suggestions
Thanks !!!! COUG'
