I suggest upgrading the power supply before doing anything else. m 0 l cor33y December 12, 2012 5:03:09 PM ok thanks m 0 l Related resources Upgrading Pre-built // Some Questions - Forum Upgrading my GPU - Forum I thinking of upgrading my Graphics Card - Forum upgrading gpu (what do i do with old gpu drivers?) - Forum Upgrading to a better graphics card - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I'd recommend getting a 520 or a 550W, just to be sure. The PSU is the last thing you would want to cheap out on.
