  1. I would like to upgrade my graphics card (possibly need a low profile card) and possibly my PSU (probably needed). I currently have a 250W PSU and an Nvidia GeForce 9200.

    Can anyone help me with some much needed info on what to get as I would like to play games. I'm not in the market for a super gaming PC, but some of the games I want to play just won't run on my PC without being slow and glitchy. Also, price is a factor, the cheaper the better.

    PC specs below. Any other specs required, please ask.

    Many thanks!

    You need to answer a few questions first:

    1. What is your budget for GPU + PSU?
    2. What games are you looking to play and at what resolution?
    3. Is your current system an OEM build?
