Will you need a bigger PSU?

Yes for sure, depending on what card you go for, you only have a 300w.

Do you have a budget for a new Graphics Card?

A good mid/high range card is the Saphhire Radeon 6770 (or the vapor-x edition).

With that budget take a look at the following :

PSU :

GPU :

That should last you a good 3years.

That specific one is priced well.
Its important to get a good brand of PSU, Coolermaster, Antec, Corsair, etc, it really extends the life of your PC.

A good PSU can even save a motherboard from damage in the case of an electrical surge.

No, most people can't use more than 8GB.

Pleasure, let me know what your final decision is.

So, to tag onto this... I want to ADD a video card to this same PC. I want to use the other 2 monitors that I have for a total of 4 Monitors active.

I find with the current setup I can use any 2 of the available video outputs from the installed stock ATI Radeon HD4350.

I know I need and have purchased a bigger PSU; CORSAIR|650W CMPSU-650TXV2.

Im NOT a gamer. I do websurfing and MS office with a lot of .ppts.

I assume that I need to add a video card.

This is the link to the PC for reference:

Can someone give a recommendation of what I need to buy? I dont think I need a big gun, Probably something in the sub $100 range.

Thanks,
