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.
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.

Why not use the remainin money to get i5 quad core
Would it be better to upgrade the CPU or to replace this HD?
I mean this WDC WD10EARS-22Y5B1
Gpu is must upgrade.your cpu can litle perform less due to dual core.so you can upgrade to i5 or i7 as they are quad core and performs better in games.
