I'm looking for a NVIDIA 7 Series GPU.

I currently have: NVIDIA Geforce 6150LE


If no one can help me find one, can someone tell me what to look for exactly to see
if my computer can take it?

AGP or PCI-E?
If you don't know, we'll need to know the specs of your computer to find out, or you'll have to crack your case open and verify which slot you have.

Probably the best 7000 series card you'll find. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814143090
Really the only one worth looking at if you're a gamer.
If you think you might be interested in Vista and DX10 games you should look at getting an 8800GTS or the 8600GT if you're on a budget, since the 7000 series cards only support DX9.

The 7000 series looks affordable, how about the 8 series? Maybe I can squeeze in a little more bucks, and I suck at searches *sorry.

Okay, I've looked over some products and I did a little searching of my own:

Here is one that looks affordable and good for me, I've read over the requirements
but still unsure if It's correct.

An 8800GTS is awesome, you will not be disappointed.
Just first make sure that you have a power supply that's up to snuff. Needs to be at least 400W, preferably one with dual +12v rails and and PCI-e connector.

HP/Compaq uses that mobo in their entry level computers, your case may not even take a full size atx power supply, what model of computer do you have?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130062

might even push your present PS too much?

it's a gamble

Minimum of a 350 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 18 Amps.)


ratings are usually on the side of the PS

Chewy

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I physically checked my power supply but I wasn't able to read it all, but
somewhere on the label it states 200-240W. Something like that. So I'm guessing
that is my wattages for my power supply.

That leads me to not being able to use the GPU I'm about to buy, but If I can
replace and buy a new Power Supply. How do I find the correct one?


Oh and I'm sticking with this I guess:
