  1. The only thing you COULD do would be a new processor which would have the be AM2+ which isnt an upgrade really. If you want to upgrade more its a system overhaul. The card will help with what you need for right now, beyond that its cheaper to rebuild/complete overhaul. Changing ram wont help as its dual channel ddr2.
    I would get a new power supply, as the 220 watt one in there, wont run that card.

    How much would a new power supply be at best buy or some place near the St.joseph MO
  3. If you dont plan on upgrading anything else, this would work http://www.bestbuy.com/site/antec-450-watt-power-supply/4070566.p?id=1218454388147&skuId=4070566
    Anything Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX above 450watts is a good choice.
  4. You will need a power supply with more watts, like the ones that the users above have posted, you should also try upgrading your Motherboard to AM3+ and buy a quad core FX for about $150, maybe more.

    Try upgrading your RAM too, it will need to be DDR3 ram, I recommend 1866 MHz memory.
