I have a advent 3511,with a geforce 4 mx440, what would be the best graphics card upgrade to fit, to play the latest games,2.80ghz pentium,1024mb mem,and I think it has a 200watt psu, thanks in advance.

I would imagine that your psu would need to be upgraded before you install an upgraded graphics card.

I had problems with a graphics card upgrade until I bought and fitted a Trust '520W Pro Low Noise Big Fan' psu, less fan noise as well

The current psu I have has three fixing screws, Micro ATX mother board, Fiat 2 case ?, Will any ATX psu fit my case or will it have to be altered.

the highest wattage psu I have found at scan computers, Is a 300w sparkle micro atx sfx 12v3.01 fsp300-60ls. The mother board is a Microstar MS 6579 ,How do I find a graphics card that would be ok with this setup.
