  1. The 300W PSU is a real limitation, i would suggest an ATI 4650 for that budget but i am not sure if the PSU will hold it. Maybe a veteran can help on this.

    A 300W PSU would be able to handle a 4650 no problem. You might also want to consider a 4670 as it's slightly more powerful, or a an Nvidia GT 240. Both would work with your current system and enable you to watch videos at 720p, no problem.
