Hello! I am new to tom's hardware as a forum poster, but have visited in the past for tech support. So, i decided to (finally) create an account! :p 

I was looking for help to see if this particular graphics card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... would run properly in my motherboard..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-186-...
(ok, i know it's an old board. But i just got this board in a computer from my parents, which had crapped out on them and thus gave it to me to use.)

Also, i believe my power supply is only 250w, should i buy a new one, and if so what preferred company?
My goal is to make it into a budget gaming pc.

Thanks for any advice! :)

alright, i am now learning something lol... i see that the amd radeon hd 7750 is used in several cards. So, is their any card/company that you'd prefer to purchase?

also, another question... my pci-express slot is just a 1 i think... the once card i like is 2.1, and the one recommended is 3.0. There going to be any problems if i put a higher 'rating' into my pci-e 1.0 slot?
