Hello, thanks in advance for helping me out. I have minimal understanding of computers so I dare not attempt to mess with this particular issue. A few months ago I tried to add more RAM to my computer but found my power supply couldn't handle it..and it fried. So, I'm looking to play some of the new games coming out but they require a better graphics card than what I have!

My question is, if I get a new video card, will I also need to upgrade my power supply? If so, would I perhaps need to upgrade anything else? I only have a $250ish budget.

Some info on my computer (if needed)

CPU: AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
1.7 GB of RAM
305W power supply
