Hello everyone, I am totally new but I will stay on my topic;

My desktop is 3 years old now, but it's been real good since the beginning. I have a Dell Vostro 200 Mini tower,

I have a ATI Radeon HD 3650 video card (if i'm not wrong, mine's 256Mb) I am looking for a better graphic card, but i'm not big of a geek on computers. Still learning. My motherboard says Foxcon but I have no idea the model. Running on;

- Intel Dual-Core E8300 (2.83Ghz) Processor
-4Gb Ram
- Ati Radeon HD3650 Graphic card (help for a better one)
- Motherboard specs (According to everest) says:

What is the wattage of your power supply,also how much physical space do you have for a video card? what is your budget? and at what resolution do you game at? We need to know this to be better able to make suggestions.

What is the size of your PSU? It is the label on the side of the power supply. The wattage would be nice.

My Power Supply says 160 Watts max at the side, I don't have a problem getting a new power supply if it's needed though. I think i can spend up to $200-250. I don't mind the resolutions of the game tbh, I just want it to run atleast a bit smooth, not looking for a killer just something better.

- Don't know physical space for a video card really means. I'm spanish and i'm just 16 so im not geek on PCs.

No laughing matter for you mate as you will need a whole new pc to run a gpu as 150 watts is no where near enough ;) 



as I said earlier, I will buy a new power supply if it's needed. Also saw the laptops, never knew about them.

Base level Vostro 200 systems use Celeron 420 processors, but the version supplied to us was fitted with a Core 2 Duo E6320, running at 1.86GHz, with 4MB of level 2 cache. The chip is supported by 2GB of main memory, giving plenty of room for the copy of Windows Vista Business, which is pre-installed. Dell banners the Vostro as ‘Windows Optional', but this appears to be which version of XP or Vista you want bundled, not an option for a bare machine or one equipped with Linux.

Based off this you are running a celeron?



No i'm running on a Intel Core 2Duo, and downloading couple of programs one said something about Pentium Xenon 3... but this desktop SEEMS to be a customized one, i have never changed anything on it and it's;

-4Gb Ram memory
- 2.83Ghz Dual core processor
- ATi Radeon HD 3650...

Which I have not seen this specs much on this particular Desktop models.

I'm looking for it, but it's a ATI mobility, and my PC is a desktop not a laptop.
