Could someone take some time and give me some advice on what power supply unit and graphics card to get.

I am not looking for products, just general specifications which will help me find a good product.

As far as a power supply goes, what wattage would i need? Also are there any other things i need to check before i buy.

With a graphics card i am looking for a 256MB card but prices range wildly from £50-£300. Does anyone have any suggestions for a 256MB card?

MB, Processor and RAM are listed below

Good all around card would be ATi X1650 or Nvidia 7600 pci express 16.
You probably want a 450-500 watt psu and the only brands I ever recommend are Antec, Thermaltake, Enermax or Sparkle.
