Dude, you're still rolling with a P4? Limit yourself to a 300 level card, because you really, really won't be able to tell a difference; that CPU will bottleneck the shit out of any other video card. 8300 or... I think it's going to be the 3400, right?
Yeah, don't spend much on a GPU with that CPU. For a PSU, just make sure you pick up something more than $20 with a rating that is close to 400w; you won't be needing a whole lot of power, but you want to make sure you get something at least half-assedly decent.
edit: almost any PSU should fit, so long as you have an ATX case, which you may or may not. ATX cases are the "normal" cases, not the minis. Your mobo probably needs a 20-pin power connection, so make sure you get a PSU with a 20+4, not just a 24.

I suggest you buy a new PC instead .

lol, no need to have a very excact information about your PC, just tell us roughly. Your CPU will bottleneck the card, that's for sure, if you want graphic cards that won't be bottlenecked, get mid-class cards, like Radeon X1650XT, HD2600XT, something like that, if you want to have a Radeon X1950PRO AGP, not very worth. Because in future you may change your MotherBoard to PCIe and your X1950 will go no where. Anyway 478-pin is really useless, try and get a MotherBoard with LGA75 dual-core support, think you can find real cheap deals of CPU out there. For PSU, get a good one with 20+4 pin support, like a 500W is good...

If I had money to buy a new PC I would, AND if I could just go buy a new PC; do you think that I would be upgrading the one I have??? Do you think I would even bother entering this forum and asking questions? I got this PC for $65 at a university auction and I want to make the most of it. If you were capable of any sort of rational deduction you would have pre-assumed all of that. You may know what consists of a good computer but your problem solving skills leave something to be desired. Please mature and then carefully respond to someone's thread with a productive and intelligent response.
Lol... that was uncalled for .
I already gave you a rational and a productive response in your other thread . Next time limit yourself to one thread , thank you .
