Hello,
I need to upgrade my video card, but not sure what is compatible with my system.
Would like to stay with either Nvidia or ATI. I am into gaming.

Everest report attached

Thanks

I am actually looking at an X800pro from a friend of mine. He says, tho, it requires a 300W power supply...? Is that a separate PS or what? I think the one I have now is only 250W. Will this card work with my system?

You will need a new Power supply for that card, 250W isnt enough i dont get why they sell pcs with those in them they are really borderline to run them in the first place without any additions or upgrades. 350W or more should do you from a reputable company, you will see cheap ones for not alot of money dont get them generic PSUs are more trouble than they are worth.
