Windows 7 Home Premium
Service pack 1
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
3.00 GB of RAM
Model: KC880AA-ABA m9150f
I have Nividia GeForce 8500 GT and i want to upgrade to something better.

The fastest card you can handle without upgrading your PSU is an ATI HD56/6670. Anything after that, your 350W PSU will not handle it.

Ok, so now I'm thinking about getting the ATI HD 6670 but the recommended PSU is 400W, mine is only 350W. Will my computer be able to handle it?

Yea but they just put 400W there because they want to make sure all PSU work. Your PSU should be fine I think. Here Is why I say that:
