Hi I was looking to purchase a new video card. I don't know all that much about video cards so if anyone could help recommend one to me I would appreciate it.

My computer specifications are here:

If anyone would be kind enough to recommend a graphics card in the 130-160 dollars range I would be very great full. I would be using it mostly for gaming. Thanks again!

Also, I already figure i'm gonna need a new power supply. Any cheap reliable ones that could go with it? Thanks for the learning experience.

Cheap vs reliable is like military and intelligence. The two don't mix. Get a good brand name, such as thermaltake, Antec, and so forth---

for video cards, you need one that fits a PCIe X16 slot, here is a selection in your price range at Newegg
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
