To answer your first question the GeForce610 is less crappier than the other but both are crappy. Listen man I totally understand that you want to cheap out and I totally don't blame you. Give us a budget and we can at least try to give you the best bang for your buck with your budget and that way you won't be getting ripped off with 5450's and 610's.

I'll need to know another thing too. I have to find out if your case will be able to accept a double PCI slot card or we'll have to stick with a low profile single slot card. The simple way to determine this is when you are facing the front of your computer does the side panel, to access the processor, hard drives ect, open on the left side or right side?

Also are you opposed to rebates so that after rebates it's within your budget?

This would be a better PSU if you want one. 22.50 for a semimodular 430w corsair.

So now im sure I need a new PSU.

There's an instant savings code up top then a mail in rebate. If you find one at that price without a MIR then it's probably going to burn down your house.

hey Phil, I realized that. I edited my post with the new GPU that i purchased. I need to know what PSU to get for that, as a replacement for the one in my computer.

I believe the CPU I installed requires 95W.

The specs on that card say I require a 500W PSU. Does that take in account the needs of the CPU?

That Corsair PSU that Phil linked to would be an excellent choice. The 500w minimum stuff is just waffle.
