Hello there, yesterday it was my birthday and I am deciding to use the money I got to upgrade the parts on my computer. I had bought prior to this in the summer a Gateway DX4870-UB21P:

I am looking at graphics cards because my computer is currently without one. I currently have Intel 2320 (90% sure its a sandy bridge) with integrated graphics and looking to upgrade my computer. I am aware I will also have to upgrade my power supply and also get a new fan as well. I am hoping someone could assist me in finding a graphics card compatible with the computer I have. I am looking for a graphics card under $170 but above $100.

I was wondering if you can check if these products are compatible.

Hi. You don't need an aftermarket cooler and I'm not sure if it will fit within that case. If you want a PSU with modular cabling from Newegg, I recommend the Rosewill Hive 550W for $50 after rebate. With the money you save you should get the GTX 660 from Zotac for $195 after rebate since it's one of the shortest and I think worth the extra $35.
