Exactly what hefe said.. u need a new psu for a better GPU to power it

Pci-E ---- Pci Express slots. There on your motherboard google the model of ur computer and see if it has atleast 1 of these slots.

-EDIT-

Hmm sorry didn't refresh the page.. so now we need some ram..tell us if ur OS - Operating System (windows vista, windows XP , etc.)

Then if it's 32 bit or 64 bit.

And, if you want 2gb of ram then pretty much your fine with any of the two ( 32 bit, 64 bit) That's what I currently have.

it shows right on the case here & in hardware ATI Radeon 200 Series. i double checked now that I'm home its a a1400e hp pavilion - and i'm running xp service pack 2 home edition


sorry for double post but what does this mean: According to HP it can use up to 4gb of ram. Keeping in mind if you have a 32bit OS it would not be able to utilize all 4gb. -- i can have 4gb but it wont run all of it?

Again: I dont know what u mean by 32 or 64 bit....

Difference Between 32 Bit (x86) and 64 Bit (x64)

can you just do one double check for us?
run cpuz on your computer. CPUID

run it and report back what cpu it says you are running.
I just want to make sure we are discussing the correct specs.

Well then HP's website is wrong as I trust cpuz results over what their website says.

I know your motherboard is an asus but can you post the model of it?

They are pretty solid. I would look at this psu as an alternative. $99 with $20mir. After mir $10 less than the Antec.

I wouldn't recommend spending that much on upgrading his system because even with a new gnu the cpu would still severely hold it back.

These parts are $244 before mail in rebates and would be everything you meed assuming you reuse the hard drive and optical drive form your current system. I didn't include a dedicated video card however the integrated HD 3200 is considerably faster than your current gpu and you could easily upgrade to a dedicated card in the future.
