Totally confused and bewildered. Want to upgrade my graphics card so I can play Empire Total War, but am confused by power supply issues. What would be compatable with my Dell?

Based on the age of the computer (pentium4) and that it has a 305watt power supply I would suggest a HD4670
It is about what the CPU can handle without bottleneck.

What is your current card?
It's okay for Pentium 4, an old cpu, But with that card(4670) you will see a huge performance increase then your previous graphic(???), it would be a nice upgrade for your PC...

I've had a look on amazon but can't find the card you recommend. Would a Sapphire HD4650 1GB DDR2 PCI-E Graphics Card, work?
