For $150 you can get a 650ti or if there is a sale, even a 7850. Unfortunately your power supply can't handle either. So you should upgrade that psu before you buy a graphics card. With that cpu you may want to overclock or purchase a lower end card just to prevent bottlenecking.

he has HP , they don't overclock - mostly , and 7850 on sale plus a psu is way out of a 150$.

If OP has already upgraded to a CX 500, then OP should be fine with a Radeon 7850 or a GTX 650 Ti. I wouldn't go much farther in upgrades with that PSU unless it's a V3 model, but it should be fine with OP's current system and up to a Radeon 7870 or so for graphics (granted that would be out of OP's budget).

I think the best option is getting a hd 7770, the psu can handle it and your cpu isn't going to bottleneck it. you can get a hd 7850 but your cpu might just bottleneck it

That's a good point too. The Phenom II x2s aren't very fast CPUs.

"That's a good point too. The Phenom II x2s aren't very fast CPUs"

That's why I recommend 7770 for 120$, for this system is a ok choice.
Has anyone bothered to read his specs?

I wasn't making recommendations when I said what I said. I was simply correcting Norlag's response about the PSU.

Yeah, it's a decent card. It should work fine for a few years.
