Ok, so for starters I have an Acer AX1420G-U5832 computer. I play Starcraft 2 and right now I can run it on minimum graphics with a small amount of lag. I am almost positive that this is on behalf of the graphics card, because the RAM is above minimum requirements. I am told that i should get a PSU upgrade first, (which i really know nothing about) Anyways I have heard that with such a small model I would need to upgrade to a bigger case (which I am more than willing to do), but I have not a clue as to which one I should get. I was wondering what type of case I should get, and after that, what would be the best graphics card to buy and the best PSU to updrade to? My budget is around $100-$200 (I could go up to $400 if necessary)

NOTE: I would like to run low graphics settings smoothly and possibly medium with a bit of lag.

Hello,

Is this your computer?

If so it says you have GeForce 6150SE Graphics, this is an integrated graphics processor which is ultra budget. If you take a look at the hierarchy chart you will see it is 4 from the bottom in terms of performance:

So basically anything you put in as a discrete card will be much, much better. Looks like it can and has been done:
