Well, anything worth upgrading to will require a new PSU to be able to handle Mass Effect 2 and BFBC2.

What is your budget??

Also, check the size will fit!!

I had a Dell Dimension and I had to modify the case & card slightly to get a dual card to fit because of size and where my SATA ports were. A single slot card works best.
