Do you know what size case you have? From the number of drives it has I'm guessing it's a mid-tower. If you aren't sure, does it look about the same size as other peoples computers?

This may be a determining factor in what type of psu you have to get. I'm guessing you'll be lucky and it will be a mid-tower. There aren't a lot of psu's out there for micro-atx cases. But I believe microATX boards can be used in normal cases, as is hopefully your case.

Yeah, it looks like everyone's computer. The size of the tower it is. I picked out a graphics card and a psu. Tell me if you think these are the best I can get for UNDER $250.00. I would like to change my case too and get a new PSU, and graphic card, but I don't think that I have enough for it....Here's what I'm at so far:

I'd go with a PCI card. They are underrated. Believe me, I have one.
