Don't get that card at that price. Get the 6600 GT. It soundly outperforms the 9800 Pro, and is cheaper.

Is the difference between the 6600 and the 6800 gts that much? overall if you will be playing games like half life 2, cs, doom 3, is 6800gt worth it?

People are still saying the 6800GT is like 310+ because the PCI-E version IS still that much. Just ordered mine from monarch for $340 with a $20 mail in rebate.

I know that the motherboard is a MicroATX. Here are the complete specs of my computer from the HP WebSite:

Hopefully that helps you guys out. And yeah, I just want to change my PSU. I don't even thing my 250 watt PSU is strong enough for my 3200+ and my fx5500. Hrm.. Plus, what PSU would fit in my case? I don't know much about them, so some advice would be great. Thanks.
