I am upgrading my graphics card and I need a good budget PSU....so I might as well get a 750w while I'm at it. Below are my computer specs. I'm a novice at computer building so I'm not to familar with changing them out but I'm sure this website will help alot. What would you guys suggest. I am wanting to be able to run BF3, MW3, SWTOR, Diablo (when it ever comes out), Guild Wars 2.

The PC you linked is pretty useless, unfortunately. It's an old setup all round, from CPU to the RAM (slow AND old, mind you) and everything else as well. Not to mention the horrid graphics card. This machine will run things like Sims and Sims 2, Age of Empires 2 and 3, Warcraft 3, etc. etc. It won't be capable of keeping up with things like Diablo 3 or BF3, unfortunately. You need to decide what you're willing to spend first, and then how you're looking at gaming. A BF3-capable PC with screen, keyboard and mouse will run at around $1000, and then you're entering the market at the basic components only.

Lol I was afraid of that..surely there is something I can do to play some of the titles. Still would like to know what everyone would recommend since I can always install it into another computer.

Wrong. I have a budget £300 pc that will play BF3 on medium settings at about 40 - 45 fps

Depends on the video card, but yes more than likely it will work.

you probably won't need 750w but if you do decide to buy one then i would recommend the Corsair GS750, I have one and it's running pretty nice
