This user purchased this item from Newegg

Pros: Got this card for my HP p6310y. I did not want to upgrade the 300 watt power supply and this card did the trick. Just plopped it right in, installed drivers and I'm playing World of Warcraft (thats the only game I play) on High settings (not Ultra though) on a 1600 x 900 widescreen resolution. Great card, great value

Cons: None, maybe slightly noisy but not even that. This is my first card with a fan so I'm just not used to it.

Is there a reason why you do not want to upgrade your psu?
With the card SpywareDr is suggesting and your budget you
could afford to upgrade the psu also, it will give you more
options for the future, here are a couple of links for you;

HMM alright buying a power supply might not be a bad idea,but where would it plug into ,and just from that, you can plug your video card into it?

Both are a straight forward task if you do a bit of research and follow safety
and anti static procedures first, have a look at the tutorial by Troy in the
link here http://www.geekstogo...r-own-computer/
Once you have swapped a psu and video card out your confidence and knowledge will
grow + there is always someone at GTG who will assist should you ask.
Good luck and let us know what you decide.
