If you don't want to upgrade the power supply, your best option is the Radeon 7750. It will run on your PSU as it only draws 55W under full load and doesn't require any pci-e power connector. You can probably find it on a UK website but here's the card on newegg :

That card will let you play pretty much any game with decent frames, especially COD games.

thank you.
as for the psu that could also be an option.
what options would you suggest, nothing too expensive.

i have also recently looked at that card you suggested on ebay for around the £85 mark.
i have also seen the Radeon 7770 as well for a little more.

but im def open to suggestions on psu and card that would allow me to enjoy a better gpu.

thanx
