I want a graphics card that can run all games on high settings but that does not run hot. I also need to know what PSU I would need for it ie watts and amps. Looking to get modular PSU. This is my PC:

What is your budget for the graphics card and power supply and what games do you play?

What is you budget? look at a hd 7770 for you current setup. I'm not too sure about your cpu though, someone else can prolly give more info if it is a good match for the 7770

Willing to spend $225 on the GPU and $125 on the PSU. Do you know how many years they will last?

You might just need a better cpu to run  a $225 gpu eg hd 7870, which means new mobo and ram and OS also someone can verify this

No need to upgrade the CPU as it is a Core 2 Quad Q9300 which won't bottleneck a 7870. 

 

Graphics card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHZ Edition - $220

 

Power Supply: Seasonic SSR-650RM 650W - $110 - Plenty of power for future upgrades.

Thank you for the recommendations. Do you know what the difference is between the Seasonic G Series and X Series. I was thinking of this PSU before you posted: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Power+Supplies-_-SeaSonic+USA-_-17151088

The difference is mostly the build quality although the G serie's build quality is already superb, the X series is one notch up.
