Eeww :s, I once had a vcr and tv from that brand long long time ago. Pure junk hahaha unless you like sparks, smoke that gets you high, and a dead rig then feel free. A small joke is hidden in there.

I was trying to find info about rails and such but to no luck, specs on the psu.
to me that means it's crap..
if bent on keep that psu I'd say you can run an HD5670 or GT240, GT440.
but I do recommend you upgrade that power supply.

GPU+PSU for a 100$ ? Are you talking about American dollars ? If yes, then no.

If you are serious about having some good time gaming, the starting point is a Radeon HD 5670 512MB GDDR5. Not even the GT240 or the slightly faster (but otherwise the same 96 shaders) GT 440 can match the HD5670 512MB GDDR5. This card costs 75$.

If you really can't spend more, then you can even run this card on your current PSU. It does not need any additional PCIe power cables; it will draw from the PCIe slot all it needs.

I wouldn't recommend getting another PSU with the ramainder 25$, you would only get another dubious PSU like the one you already have. You need to spend at least 50$-75$ to get a quality PSU. Don't even buy anything that is not 80plus certified.

This is a good starting point:

Seasonic 520w PSU, 80 Plus Bronze, for $69.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cheers!
