Hello,
I am no running a 8400 GS 512mb video card in my Dell dimension 8400 3.0 ghz pentium 4. Is there any thing faster for this motherboard or is the 8400 gs video card the end of the road for this PCI express 16 slot MB

What is the definition of a "good" power supply? What is the brand?

Even on that power supply, the furthest you could go is probably about a 5670 until the video card would bottleneck (more or less outpace the processor). The 5670 is a very good budget card and won't cost you much.

The brand cooler is a Thermaltake 500 Thanks for your tip about the 5670

Thermaltake is a good brand, and you can run alot of stuff off of it, yet you might not want to go higher, since the CPU would bottleneck the GPU. The 5670 (6670 is the same, badge engineering) is probably the highest you can go.
