http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (i wouldnt normaly recomend a cheap PSU but with your budget not much choice)
try these two. $102 after rebate. should help you play cod much better. You will have to instal the new power supply as your 250w is not up to the job. sounds complicated but if you take your time and do some reading up it isnt that difficult at all.

Btw, i have now knowledge >:D ,
I have a DDR2 slot.
And btw, im thinking of 9000 + GT like that. Because of good specs and less price.
And i am now wondering of how "bit" is being implemented in installing it in my pc,
Because i have a 32-bit OS w7 pc, and im getting confused of 256/128 bit video cards? does that affect too in compatibility in my pc?
Score

August 28, 2011 12:23:43 PM

no , it does not affect compatibility in your PC .
'128/256 bit' refers to 'how much' information can flow simultaneously ( in the case of graphic cards , it is within the graphic card ) , it is also called 'bandwith' . so obviously the card that has 256-bit bandwith will be faster; but you needn't worry about that, as your hardware cannot take advantage of that. And, most graphic cards use the PCIe 2.0 slot . it is a very long slot on your motherboard , typically on the place where it meets the rear of the chassis. if the graphic cards specification states it works in PCIe 2.0 or 2.1 , it should work in yours.

though be careful as most work in PCIe x16 ports and you don't have one.

and btw , if you want to learn about computers , i would recommend peter norton's " Inside The PC. " it may seem confusing at first , but stick with it and soon you will learn almost everything you need to know . also read some of the other threads and try to pick up some slang and understand the acronyms.

the bandwith has to do with the inside of the graphic card , not the outside and if you have a PCIe 2.0 slot , it will fit.

i cannot guarantee top performance as the rest of your computer will limit the graphic card.

how much did you spend for the whole system anyway , i want to see if you were ripped off.

Is that for gaming? Can i use it for playing CoD's? BF's?

It isn't the best for gaming but will play cod and bf, but the performance wont be very good especially for the upcoming bf3, which will most likely play low settings with that card depending on your system specs

Yes, your slot is being taken up by your current card. Physically look at your board and make sure it is exactly as that picture posted and if so then you are good to go. You will be replacing your current card taking up that slot with the new card

It does not state in the mobo specs, but all 2.0 slots are backwards compatible with 1.0. You need to look at your mobo and see if you actually have the slot on it and see what the etch next to the slot says. that is your best bet in finding out since we have no way of seeing your exact mobo without a pic.

From the Pics you posted you do have a PCI-ex16 slot available for a video card (the brownish slot next to the 966IN printed on the MOBO ) so you would need a PCI-e video card -- the problem is you also only have a 250W Powersupply so will need a low power consuming card or will need to also change the PSU !

You might be able to get by with at most a 5670 like this one for $55 After MIR but it will be pushing the PSU close to its limit (figure this is the best performing card that does not require an external power plug so uses less than 75W and you have a fairly low poer consuming CPU at 65W so it might be OK on your 250W PSU -- but getting a better PSU would be recommended)

There isn't really any difference between a pci-e x 16 2.1 and a pci-e x 16 2.0 slot.
The HD 5670 should do fine on that motherboard.
That Rosewill PSU should also be fine for that GPU.
