I suggest upgrading the power supply before doing anything else. cor33y December 12, 2012 5:03:09 PM ok thanks Related resources Upgrading from a 6850 - Forum Upgrading from Athlon II x2 250 to Phenom 965 BE - Forum Help upgrading my CPU/Video - Forum Upgrading my HP for Gaming - Forum Upgrading PC after 4 Years(2009) Need Help!

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.
