which psu do you have?does it has an 6 pin connector?

hd 6770 will be the best card at that price just check whether you have 6 pin pcie connector or not

if u dont have 6 pin pcie connector then get an hd 7750 which performs almost like hd 6770 and uses very less power and will work on 350w psu.:)

:D  Its funny.
Seriously, if your PC is currently running, you have it. The PC can not be turned on without the PSU.
Or do you mean your PSU does not have the label similar to what sunnk posted?

But you have the box with the lots of cables, right? You do not see it outside of the PC. It is inside. If you are able to use the PC, then it must have the PSU. Maybe of different brand but the looks should not be too different. Can you take a picture of the inside of your PC and post here?

It will be better if you take several pictures of the inside of your PC in difference angles and so we can see ourselves. If it is not visible, we can point out to you to adjust angle or which part to focus on. Cheers! :)

We'd like to help you but because there is no definite answer to our questions, I will just take a safe recommendation for a graphics card that can fit into any kind of PSU and motherboard under your $100 budget:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...
If you want to graphics card with better performance & most probably do not need an upgrade for your PSU, the HD 7750 is recommended but its $109.99+shipping:

Give the kid a break. He did say he is just 1st year highschool. From where he is, it means he is just 12~13 years old. It's good that he even started asking about graphics cards. At least by asking he learned that he have the PSU after all.

You mean maximum.

Anyway, sabihin mo sa mommy mo, dagdagan nya lang ng P250 yung budget para mabili mo ito:

sa konting dagdag na halaga e mas mabilis di hamak yung 5670.

The 9800GT is just a little more powerful but it also require PCIe power connectors which again needs that you look if your power supply have the PCIe connectors.

So how much is the 9800GT being sold? If you are getting it 2nd hand and you have to pay for it, don't. If it is new, then the store is selling it to you just to get rid of it because nobody else will buy it unless is very cheap.

You should know that the 9800GT is a very old model & tehcnology. It is already replaced by nVidia 2XX, 4XX, 5XX and now nVidia have 6XX. So its 5 generations old.
