NVIDIA says that the minimum wattage requirement for the 9500GT is 350W.
You might want to consider a PSU upgrade, but wait for Troy's opinion.

There is DDR5 RAM, but only ATI uses it. You could also get a 4650 which should work with your PSU.

Ok, the 4650 video cards were either over my budget or I just didn't liked, and some were 400+ watts. But I did find one that was 300W+.

Either way they're all on your limit. I would definitely upgrade the PSU in the machine as well.

Yea, I will buy a better PSU when I have more money. =/ Anyways since I got this all sorted out I guess this topic should be closed now.
