Hello ^^ I'd like some advice in choosing a new GPU for my system. My desktop is quite out-of-date, but I can't afford to get a new one yet. Recently I became interested in playing Skyrim, and I realized that my current GPU, 9500 GT, wouldn't be able to handle it. So any advice for choosing an adequate GPU for my current system would be much appreciated!
CPU: Intel C2Q @2.66GHz Q8400 Ram: 3.00GB PSU:500W (not sure about the name, came with Sonata III 500 case)
Also, if it's possible, I'd like a GPU that doesn't require me to change my PSU.
Thanks in advance!

A 5770 pulls about 100 watts. That would work nicely.
Something like a 6850 pulling about 125 watts should work, but you will need 2 PCIe power connectors.
Thank you for the reply.
After doing some additional research based on your recommendation, I've decided to go with 6850.
I spent all my free time looking up different opinions/statistics...:P
