I would suggest you upgrade your PSU :)  And I don't think you would need a new cooler, have you had any problems with overheating in the past? If not, no you don't.

But a new power supply is a must. Here are some recommendations.

Any from that list is fine. Though if you prefer something different, I would stick with Corsair, Seasonic, and Antec (Preferably around the 380-450w as well :lol:  )

Hello,
I am running a Sapphire HD 6850 with a CoolerMaster eXtreme Power Plus 460w.My system specifications are-
Intel Core2Duo E7400.
3.00GB Ram.
500GB HDD(Internal)
I too had the intel g33/g31 chipset on my Hp pc but thanks to Tom's Hardware,I bought the HD 6850.If you don't like the CoolerMaster,you can go for the Corsair cx 430,which I am told,is better than my PSU.
