Upgrading geforce 8400gs, newbie

Hi everyone,

Casual gamer who has reached the top limit of the installed GeForce 8400gs that came installed with my whitebox a couple years ago. Became more noticeable when I loaded Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam.

From what I can tell, this is a low profile PCI form factor. Not sure how to find out what other form factors, if any, my motherboard supports or what the top end is on my power supply. Don't want to make this overly complicated as this machine isn't primarily a gaming machine. I do a little low-end video editing and processing on it very occasionally.

Would like to keep the cost under $100, if possible.

Thanks!

More information needed on you setup. Not much to upgrade with $100.

What are the rest of your specs?
For a $100, a HD 5670 or a HD 6670 are good choices.
