  6. gt440 will also run without external power.
  7. Remember all the cards that run without external power still draw that power from the power supply but just through the mb slot.
  8. What is the your budget for this upgrade?
  9. 40$ for a new power supply, and 100$ for a new card, it can go higher if you see that its needed

    If you get the $30 PSU jnkweaver suggested, then the best you can get within your budget is an Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202011

    Some people are a bit cautioned by the Corsair V.2 Series PSU as some claim it uses cheap parts, tough it has 3 years warranty. If you are concern about this, then for a bit more you can get the Antec Basiq BP500U 500W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371004
