You can run it at the moment? thats impressive lol
As for upgrade, look at a radeon 4650, will give you a massive boost over your current integrated solution

I still cant quite make out the power supply, however. This is probably one of your biggest limitations. How big is your monitor, and can you tell me what the power supply says?

Although I probably agree that a 4650 DDR3($45-50) or 4670 ($60-75) or GT 240 DDR5 ($75-80) would be your best choices. Any of them would be a massive upgrade from what you have now.

Yea I wouldn't try to run a 4670 or 5670 on a 250w HP power supply.. HP is known for making poor quality PSUs.

I think a 5570 would be the most powerful card possible, and a 4650 is probably the most economical choice as a moderate upgrade.



If you want a serious upgrade to your computer you will have to replace the power supply. I would suggest this one:

For only $39 it would let you get a gaming class graphics card for your computer.

This card would be a good deal with it if you can afford it: ($94 GTS 250)

You could get a more powerful card, but it would start to be bottle-necked by your processor. This card would be well above anything on the graph up there.

You can get up to a 4670, I have a 4670 & a 250W PSU in my HP PC with the same PSU.
It's got enough juice.

However this is just personal experience, no guarantees.
