Ok my current graphics card is an Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family, and alot of the games that have been released in the past year are not supported by it, i have games sitting there collecting dust cause the graphics are bad or non exsistant. So i want to get a new one but have no idea where to start, i gathered a list of the cards supported but worried that my computer may not handle some, i dont want to spend the money and find out my harddrive wont support it.
List of graphics cards:
Nividia Geforce series: FX5900 or higher, G100, GT120, GT130, GTS150, GTS250, GTX260, GTX275, GTX280, GTX285,GTX 295.

Do i need to upgrade psu and which card would you suggest on the list or off it, been trying to figure this out for months so any help would be much appreciated.
Your welcome . Good luck of your purchase... And unfortunately MS-7525 only supports DDR2 up to 800mhz and 4GB so that's the best for the motherboard . And you have a pretty decent monitor right there (At least it has 1600x900 resolution instead of only 720p). 560 ti will work well.
