My friend has a computer and hes looking to upgrade his video card, when the computer was originally built it wasn't intended for any mid to higher gaming, But I have a radeon 6790 video card that I previously used in my computer before I upgraded to an Msi Gtx 660.

But to get to the main point, he has a 350w power supply, I'm not sure on the motherboard, 4 gigs of memory, hes looking to upgrade to 8. a regular dvd drive, 500 gb hard drive, and a quad core Intel Core Quad CPU Q8300 2.50 GHz. and his video card is an Amd 4350.

That's about the best information I can give, Does he need to completely replace his power supply or what?

And also could you reccomend a better video card than what he has that can do some mid level gaming, if the 6790 is out of the question.

500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended

Well I was going to sell him the 6790 for $60, but if he needs a better power supply for a better card then, idk maybe a little over $100 for both a mid level gpu and psu.

well $100 or lil bit over will be a kinda hard to fit a psu and mid level gpu since mid level gpu's price like the hd 7850 is not going any where under $175
