Here's what I have: CyberpowerPC GXI-440. CoreI5 processor, 8GB ram, GT620 GPU. I've been told it only has a 350watt PSU. Is there a better graphics card I could update to without changing the PSU? Not really wanting to change the PSU if at all possible. My graphics card seems to be the bottleneck in my system.

ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB - This card should be able to work the 350W power supply and it is way better in terms of game performance.

Thanks for the fast reply. That does seem to have a lot better specs than the GT620. I'll give it a try, it's a good price too.

The specs doesn't really concern me but i rely on reviews to determine it's game performance and have a look at comparisons.
