I have a computer i built for my nephew but it has integrated graphics (the HD3200) on an ATI 780G Gigabyte Chipset

CPU is AMD Atholon 64X2 5000 (65W TDP)

1 DVD ROM drive

1 Western Digital Caviar SE16 (250GB) 7200RPM

1 PCI slot Wierless Card

1 PCI slot TV Tunner (ATI PRO Theater 650)

Keyboard and mouse of course (Just clearing that up) :)

and a 420W PSU from PC Power And Cooling with a 27 amp +12volt rail

well i have a few video cards in mind.....

I like the ATI 4850 (Gigabyte) as well as the ATI 4830 (ASUS), and the AIT 4670 (Gigabyte)

Im worried because they say you need a 450W PSU for the 48x0 series but we all know that in some cases you can squeek by if your power requierments are not that high and a high end PSU

Im kind of wondering what your input is?

he dosn't need real high performance right away but i want it to last as long as posible....and i don't want to go over $180USD

Well Thanks for your time in reading hope to hear from yall soon! (thanks in advance)
