    Hey so like the title says im a looking to replace my integrated graphics card and i also need a new power supply since the 300w one i have now is too weak. My computer is not high end or anything bought 2-3 years ago for like 500$ and ran most things smoothly but now some games that are coming out my computer is having a hard time running them and i useally get bad FPS so here are some specifications.

    My computer is a Gateway Dx4300-05
    Motherboard model is Gateway RS780
    DDR2 Memory

    The graphics card i was looking to buy is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150485

    and the power supply i have not decided on but anything that works really. i was looking at some of these so i would greatly appreciate it if someone could find me a cheap power supply that would work.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...0007657 600014019&IsNodeId=1&name=401W - 450W

    So basically what im trying to say is I dont want to go buy all this stuff wait a week for it to get here and find out it wont work with my computer so if anyone can clear some things up like what i need or any kind of suggestion to make this work or even tell me that all of this is fine and should work that would be great. Btw i am no expert on computers lol so try to put things in simple terms for me =P

    never mind of the graphics card it was not low profile. Guys anyone have a suggestion of a low profile card in 70-80$ range that will work with my computer?
