Hi,
I want to replace my Radeon X300 card with a superior 256MB or 512MB card which is pin compatible and won't blow my Dell Dimension 5000 power supply

What type of card is your Radeon X300? AGP or PCI-e?
What PSU do you have?
What is your budget?

We need more info about your current system...

PCIex16 and 305 Watt PSU. Dell PSUs are rated a bit lower than they actually can handle (looking at the 12V rails). I'd say he could run just about anything that does not require a separate 4 or 6 pin power adapter. Maybe the HD 4670? Of course, with a P4, he would probably be bottlenecking. Maybe a 4650?
