Planning to upgrade pc, video card and psu question
I bought a new pc awhile ago and plan to upgrade it soon, here's the specs:
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 235e 2.7 GHz RAM: 6.00 GB DDR2 800 Chipset: NForce 430 MCP61 Graphics: GeForce 6150SE Hard Drive: 750 GB SATA 3.0 Gbps OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PSU: 250 watt
I know the first thing I need to change is power supply and graphics card, because I want it to play games better. But my problem is my friend is getting a better graphics card and he wants to give me his old one, but he thinks it might cause problems since his came from a pre built gaming pc and im not sure what to make of it since i cant find the card on tigerdirect, so any info on this would help anyway here it is:
OEM MSI VCO Build, VCO Geforce 9800GT
I also like some recommendations on what kind of psu to get and what brand, thanks.

His card should work fine in your system! A good quality 400-500watt PSU will run that no problems, I suggest looking for Corsair or Antec in that range.
