Hello everyone. I would like to see which graphics card I could buy that would better benefit my 5 year old system.

Approximate Purchase date: Anywhere from now to a month.

Budget: $125~$200

OS - Vista 64-bit
Processor - Core 2 Dual E7200 @ 2.53 GHz
RAM - 4 GB DDR2
Motherboard – Dell Motherboard 0K068D (socket 775) P35/G33/G31
Graphics Card - AMD Radeon HD 3450
Power Supply – I believe its 300 W
Hard Drive - 500 GB Hitachi

If there's an excellent price to performance card ratio card, should I invest in a new PSU? And which cards would be compatible? Thanks in advance. Used for surfing, moderate-light gaming.

Yes, a radeon hd 7750 is good for under 120, but you will need a new power supply (maybe 500w) and possibly a new motherboard.

From what I've read, I don't think I can upgrade the dell motherboard because dell configured it weirdly on purpose. I do not have enough money in my budget to buy a new case and build a custom PC at the moment. Are there other cards available? Like the 6850?
