Sounds like that you are looking at a lower end card such as a 5770 or GTS450 by looking at your psu. Now what brand and model is your psu. Giving wattage isn't enough.

PS don't let the rich millionaires here pick on you about your CRT.

That psu is a generic unit and such units are known to be terrible. They often lie about the true wattage of the unit. they are the knock offs of the computing world.

The gts450 that you linked is of decent quality and should do you very well. Your psu isn't any ware good. Please start looking at a reputable brand that is of decent quality for the life of your system.

5670/GT240/GT430 that is the best that you can get. 9800gt/4850 if you are very lucky to find them cheap. However the psu is a high risk so look for which card uses the least power. The 5670 uses very little power and doesn't need any cables so it will be easy to dump in.

Yes so long your board isn't a 1.0 pr 1.1 spec it will work. Also they lie about it's power usage. The card can only use 60-70w max as it can only use power from the slot. It is on par with a 9800gt depending in the drivers and the games being played.

Yes as it uses very little power and even if your unit can only deliver 300w+ you should be ok. Go for the 1gb GGDR5 version if you can but if prices are to high or they aren't available then look to the 512mb GDDR5 version due to the large bandwidth advantage. If no GDDR5 version is available then go for the 1gb GDDR3 instead. It is slower but memory should keep you covered. As for system ram you have very very little but you need to upgrade that at a later time.

This card is very small like a 7600gs or a 6600gt and is much shorter than a ancient Geforce4 4400ti. To make it simple it is a little larger than a human hand at the most like a small book or plate. It only uses one slot and puts out very little heat compared to higher end cards. Average load when at idle is very very low and at normal load such as gaming it shouldn't run no higher than 60w. Fan noise is different with each card.

My relations have less knowledge on these
So how I ask them to buy this one in Australiya.
I can send an email,but is it enough..?
Do I have to let them know something important about this card or is it enough to
send url about its web page?
Will this be available in any shop in Australiya or can I move to Gt240/430 instead?

You can try those cards as well and yes send them an email. The GT240 is closer to the 75w limit which will be slightly more than the 5670 and is slower. The 5670 is closer to a 9800gt while a GT240 is closer to a 9600gt. The GT430 isn't a common card and don't use that much power either. You will be happy with any of them coming from a crappy igp (integrated gpu)
