I have an ATI 9800 pro graphics card running on Athlon 64 3000 + with 1GB of ram and a 300w psu. New games are running slow so Im thinking of getting a BFG GeForce 7800 GS OC 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (AGP). So do I need a new psu , if so which one should I get .
Thanks

Yes, you do nreed a new PSU. 300W is not enough. I would go for a 450W (minimum) PSU. Lots of reputable brands out there (e.g. Hiper, Enermax, ThermalTake). Don't go for the cheapest - it's never a good idea with PSUs.
