    Hi there!

    I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card, but I've got no idea how i go abt doing it. My friend told me tht i need a new power supply 2 coz mine is useless. I'm on a Dell inspiron 620.

    processor- intel core i3 2100 cpu @ 3.10ghz 3.10ghz
    ram - 4gb - (gonna upgrade this)
    windows 7 64 bit
    xfix card - amd radeon hd 6450
    motherboard - dell 0gdg8y
    power supply- dell max power 300w

    My aim is to play WoW on max setting with very little fps issue. I've got a budget of about £170.

    Thank you greatly in advance for the help <3

    You'd definitely need to upgrade your power supply. I would *HIGHLY* suggest a 500w or higher PSU.. and don't go with a cheap one. I've seen those blow and take the entire system with it (12v on the 3.3v standby rail).
