I would like to upgrade my graphics card without upgrading anything else low on money at the moment, I have a Dell Xps 8000.
Intel i7 860 2.80gh
8Gb ddr3 ram
Nvidia gt 220 1gb
psu 350

Any help is appreciated and try to keep it under $100.

Best is to get saphhire hd 7750 ddr5 1gb at $90 and it doesnot need good psu so it will work with your psu.

350W is too less for the 7750 considering your PSU needs to power other components in your system as well. Try to get at least a 400W or 450W power supply that would be sufficient.

Hd 7750 takes 46w at max load so it will no problem even with 350w psu.

The HD 7750 draws 90W in idle power consumption. So, a 400W or 450W PSU is recommended.
