It's a standard midtower size so pretty much any psu will fit. What is your budget for graphics card or should I be asking budget for psu+gpu?

O.k now first of all, no reason to go too crazy on the PSU. After all it's not like you can put a big one into that case, and considering the size you may want a modular unit. This Corsair HX is an older model but still a good modular PSU

this antec isn't bad for you needs either

Considering you have a small case you can't exactly fit a huge card in there anyway. The best you can probably do is a 6870 or 560Ti as far as fitting a card into the case, and it's not like you can use crossfire or SLI with that motherboard, not to mention the lack of space to fit two cards in there. If you want something bigger measure the available space before you go buying a GPU that won't even fit in your case

I should also mention that since the model has a Phenom II 830 that you can't even overclock there isn't much point in getting more than a single 6870 or 460 unless you want to go beyond 1080p (like using eyefinity).
