Heres my current system;
CPU - AMD Phenom 9550 x4
RAM - DDR2 4GB
PSU - fsp400-60tha(1pf)
ac input; 220-240V~, 4A, 50Hz
dc output; 400W (+3.3v & +5v = 150 Watt Max) (+3.3v & +5v & +12v1 & +12v2 = 385Watt Max)
GPU - Nvidia Geforce 9500GS 512MB
Mobo - unsure its the stock one in a Acer M5201 only thing i can find on the Mobo is the part number

I am currently looking into upgrading the graphics card to improve the performance of my current games and hopefully play some games coming out in the new future.
My budget is around the £80 mark for just the GPU and i intent on buying in the next month.

The games i am currently running are World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Starcraft 2 Wings of Liberty, Fable 3, Fallout NV
The games i wish to buy in the future are games like Diablo 3 & possible Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I am looking into fairly recent graphics cards like the Radeon HD 5-6 series or similair Nvidia within or around my budget.
My main concern will it run with my current PSU & is it worth upgrading it with my current CPU (bottlenecking advise)

Regards Propaine

I would recommend a complete new upgrade or at least the Processor/ PSU/GPU
