Looking for new PSU and Graphics card

I have a Gateway DX4840-11e. At the moment it's just packing the factory Intel HD Graphics. I'm looking to spend no more then $500 on a graphics card and PSU. I wouldn't mind spending less then that, but its whatever.

Screen: a 1366 x 768, 60hz, 720p.

GPU: Intel Core i3 550

Ram: 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 664MHz

Mobo: Intel H57

  2. Why not use the remainin money to get i5 quad core
  3. Just one more quick question. I have a second monitor but its nothing special. I just use it to make school work easier. Can I still have it plugged into the onboard GPU when I have the card hooked up?

    BTW, thanks a lot for helping me out. That's WAY less then I was thinking I would end up spending. Not to mention I was hoping for medium graphics at best.

    Would it be better to upgrade the CPU or to replace this HD?
