You have a 250Watt PSU, but Dell makes them with a very good quality. I would get an HD5670; one of the best graphics cards for low-power systems.

If you remove the side panel of your Dell you should see the PSU. The yellow sticker on it will give you the details. Unless it's over 300W though I say just go with a Radeon 5670. If you want something better I suggest you upgrade the PSU.

Isn't the 530 a slimline case? Or are only some slimline? You might need to buy a half height card.

Yeah, I think that S means its a slimline case. (its to thin to handle full size cards.) You need to buy one that says its a half height.

are you sure it's not the 280 or 300 watt model.?
just asking.


It actually doesn't matter if it's 250, 280, 300, or 3,000watts. AFAIK there's no 6-pin low-profile card.

^ is the card you are looking for. It won't run those games on very high, but it's a good card that will be an enormous difference over your Intel 3100.

Get an E6500 CPU. At $80 it's a decent deal.

As for RAM, if you have two slots free still then grab 2x1GB of 667 RAM. If you don't, grab 2x2GB of ddr2-800.
