I have just replaced my graphics card gforce mx440 128mb with a gefoece fx 5500 256mb card as i was haveing problems playing some game i.e the pc would stop responding and screen would go black only when i try to play sertain games apart from then pc was on run fine after changing the card im still getting the same prolem could this be due to the power suply i have only noticed its a atx 230 watt do i need say a 400 watt to run the card whe i play games.

If your card requires power aswell as the motherboard then 230w will be rather low.
