Hello all, this is my first post :D  I don't know much about hardware so please bare with me.

I currently have a lenovo pc (specs are at the bottom of the comment) and i want to transform in into a decent gaming computer, after doing some research i will need to upgrade the power supply because at the moment its only 280 watts...

OP: Windows XP
System model: 8113JCG
Processor: Inter(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)
RAM: 2GB
Chip type: Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family
Graphics card slots: PCI
Power Supply: 280 watts

I dont know if if this is the information which you need but if you need to know more just ask :)  Could all be patient and friendly with me.

Kind regards,
Brad

Actually, if you really want to make it an gaming pc you'll have to upgrade about everything. Is it a pci slot or a pci-e ?

Even you have a lot of money, you have to state your budget. Its easier for us to list it for you.

If you can reuse your typical things (that usually dont want upgrade) tower, monitor, mouse/keyboard AND Hard Disk,

Mobo: Msi: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $84.99 - $20.00 MIR = $64.99
CPU: Pentium G850 (sandybridge very good for gaming for its price (check tom's cpu hierarchy and recommand)): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $87.99
RAM: (4) 2x2GB DDR3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $26.99
PSU: 430watt Corsair. (at its price is pure steal :) ): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $44.99 - $20.00 MIR = $24.99
GPU: XFX HD-677X-ZNFC Radeon HD 6770 (better than stock cooler with a free dirt3 at great price): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $124.99 - $30.00 MIR = $94.99
