Hello,
Playing Modern Warfare2 on this Dell XPS410 with a Nvidia 7300LE and I am getting Blue lines on the screen and yellow marks all over the place. Bestbuy employee suggested new graphics card, sold me ATI Radeom HD4650 1gb for $79. It says it needs a 400watt powersupploy by the dell only has a 375watt....
Will this card work, or should I get a different card? I really don;t want to upgarde the power supply.

Any help is appreciated.

It will work fine. The dell supply is under rated and the card actually will run on an average 300watt PSU.

the 375w DELL PSU is not bad, better then a lot of 400w PSU you could buy

Thanks guys, delivered yesterday and easily installed today. Seems to work great so far. Only used it for a little bit, havent had time to play for extended period of time.

Question for you guys. There is a crossfire cable included. This is not needed if I am only using one graphics card correct? what are the advantages to using 2 of them? and i would assume the current PC power supply would not handle a second card, correct?

You are 100% correct. When running 2 cards in crossfire mode you get up to 85% increase in performance.
