Hello, recently I have purchased a HP Pavillion system. It is fast and really good. But not build for hardcore gaming. I plan to overclock the processor (not too much, but enough to speed it up a bit), upgrade the ram and get a new graphics card. I have the RAM and overclocking sorted, but I need help finding a graphics card. I shall put down the pc's details below and would appreciate it if someone could help me. I am from the UK and don't like ordering online so it would be great if someone could find me a graphics card sold in shops like Harvey Normans, PCWorld or Currys, I am on a budget and not really prepared to pay much more than £100, so please tell me the best deal for the price. Thanks.

Specs:
HP Pavillion P6 2002uk
AMD E2-3200 Processor 2.4GHz
4gb RAM
500gb Hard Drive
AMD Radeon HD 6370D Graphics
That's about it.

All good advice from theking697 :thumbsup:
Your case size is fine but your stock 300W PSU is not, add on video cards can be power hungry so anything less than a good brand 500W PSU from Antec, Corsair or Seasonic is to be avoided.
