Hey guys,

I'm trying to get a few more months out of my PC on the cheap before I build my own. I'd like to upgrade the graphics card in my current PC before I do so, as I'll likely be keeping it for various purposes after I build a new one. Here's the form!

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Next Week

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Mild gaming (Civilization 5, Skyrim, etc.) HD Video streaming and the like

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: ATI Radeon HD 4350 GPU, Some form of 650W Corsair PSU

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Core i7-920, Dell 0r849j mobo (X58 chipset, Micro-ATX) It's an OEM Dell XPS case, so not a lot of room in there.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: memoryexpress.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: None

OVERCLOCKING: Nope

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Nope

MONITOR RESOLUTION: It varies depending on where I'm keeping the PC that day

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Like I said, I really just want to be able to play Skyrim and Civilization 5 on reasonable settings without a bunch of chopping. I'd like to keep the budget as low as possible. I also need the new GPU to fit in this Dell case. I couldn't find the exact size specs for my current GPU, so I'm a little concerned about buying something that won't fit, or is incompatible with this old main board.

I was looking into the HIS Radeon HD 7750 2GB, but if there's something out there that would work out better for me, I'd love some help. Thanks!
