  1. 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).
  2. $250-$300 I figure should get me something descent?

    With that budget take a look at the following :

    PSU :

    GPU :

    That should last you a good 3years.
  5. WOW like the card. I see the psu prices vary much. Does it really make a difference?
  6. 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.
  7. OK , you've been very helpful. I thank you very much for all your help. One last question though. Do I need more memory? I have 8GB. Again thanks alot.
  8. No, most people can't use more than 8GB.

    Pleasure, let me know what your final decision is.
  9. Bought the corsair TX-750, and the ATI 6870. Playing Battlefield 3 Beta right now. Everything seems to be working great. Again thanks alot for all your help.

  11. 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,
