I mean Inspiron 560.

So I have the Inspiron 460, and I want to update the video card, not sure what to get though but I want to be able to edit things such as antialaising and what not, I really liked nVidia but I don't really see much sold anymore on NewEgg? I want it under 100$.

Is this your desktop? If yes, then your power supply is only 300W, so the graphics card choice is limited.

Based from the pictures on the Dell website, it looks like you can change to a better high wattage power supply but to confirm that it would fit, can you take a photo of inside of the desktop?

I also recently had the motherboard, hard drive, and psu changed under warranty because it over heated, so I'm not sure if they're stock, but heres a picture.

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/26/dsc04711sk.jpg/

Could I get a 9500GT? I don't really do a lot of computer work, but will this all work if I have the Intel G45/G43 Express Chipset.

I would upgrade the PSU but I want everything to be under 100$, I just want something like GTA IV to run smoothly.

The first one looks good to me, http://www.amazon.com/Power-Supplies-Computer-Accessories/b/ref=amb_link_6500672_17?ie=UTF8&node=1161760&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-5&pf_rd_r=1GY8JR6SC7RPCA0RMT2N&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1272020482&pf_rd_i=193870011

Would that PSU be good with the 9500GT?

To play that smoothly your gonna have to put the game setting to really low. This power supply would do.

Would just the video card work? Like without a new power supply? I searched it and people said it was okay because it didn't use much power?

The minimum power wattage for the 9500GT is a 350W power supply.

Oh.. Would this be good without buying a PSU or anything?

..or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130592 ?

Could I get this power supply with the 9500GT?

http://www.amazon.com/COOLER-MASTER-RS350-PSARI3-US-COOLERMASTER-RS350PSARI3US/dp/B003FFUUQ6

I'm really looking for spending under 100$ on both total.

The reason I want Evga is because I've been a nVidia fan, ATI is fine too but I want options like anti aliasing, etc.

But remember I do have Intel gfx right now.. is everything compatible?

Out of those options, i would get the 8400GS and i would get the Coolermaster power supply better then that Diablotek.

Ok, I'm getting those. So I just install the power supply and the video card (drivers, etc) and I'm ready to go..?
