You want a new video card you're definitely going to need a new power supply. that one you have now based on its specs would make a nice paperweight or doorstop, I certainly wouldn't rely on it to power a computer with modern components in it.

I guess so. I was also thinking the same thing. Well, I guess, upgrading can be as costly as buying a new computer unit.
