to upgrade, set aside a budget for the components you want to upgrade. next decide what will you use the pc for. if you want to do cpu intensive tasks, upgrade the cpu. for gaming, the gfx card. for audiophiles, may be a discreet sound card etc. the following suggestion is for a gaming pc.
processor - good
motherboard -okay
ram - add 2 gb more
psu - upgrade to one with at least 500W, 80+ rated, minimum 34A on the +12v rail, active pfc (power factor correction).
gfx card - a radeon hd 6670 1 gb gddr5 minimum for 1366x768 or higher gaming. other suggestions -
radeon hd 5750/6750
radeon hd 5770/6770
radeon hd 6850
hdd - okay
you didn't mention display or resolution. you could upgrade to a 22" if youwant to upgrade.

Its not bad, but miles from that Seasonic from the previous post.

Can u tell me why that one is no go? I just want to understand.

Its great price and it is modular and 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, so its much more efficient with Manufacturer Limited Warranty period (parts): 5 years

versus Manufacturer Limited Warranty period (parts): 3 years

Any special reason?

Get Antec, its best out of the 3 and it has some good features.

It says that u need max 336, so u are just fine with current PSU, unless the PSU is old and weak.

The calculator recomended,
Min: 286
Max: 336

OK, Try this command-line diagnostic utility for power problems.
Go to Start > Run, type cmd, then type powercfg -energy
This will generate an HTML file and so check the report for problems.

OK, never mind that. But, is your PC shutting down by itself?

Is it freezing?

Than its OK, change it when it does. It does not need to be done. I wouldn't based on your hardware nabeel155.
