    A GT 730 would do right. Your system more efficient than mine and should do you that with your 300w power supply (I tried running my setup with a 250W and a GeForce 210 and it isn't breaking sweat)

    Update: That's it.. it's a DT1404. Here's the link to the specs.

    The PU(power supply) could be as low as 300w or up to 400w or even 450w. If I use the 300w I'll see what you might be able to get.

    Thank you. It is that model. It turns out he brought it in the box.
    Thatll make it somewhat easier maybe.

    Good deal. There are good options posted here and I think you shouldn't have trouble finding a nice card for your price range and that will not overwhelm your power supply. Personally I like the EVGA line, YMMV.

    However, I suggest a card based on the nVidia 750ti chipset. You can get versions of it that don't require an auxiliary PCI-E power connection, so they would work with most PSUs (> 300W).

    I suggest that you get the PC running properly before sticking in a new graphics card.
    I agree, you should get it running correctly first before you spend money on anything else.

    You might need it to buy something you need instead of think you need.

    Thank you all for the help. I will look into graphics cards reccomended. The EVGA looks good.
    I might get the gaming keyboard and mouse first, if it involves a lot of keyboard etc work.
    Its very twitchy sometimes.

    And I'm back! Having forget the website. Stuff happened. Grisly stuff.
    The pc kept crashing so it went to the pc doctor. It has a fan now.

    I got a new gaming mouse so no more scrolling. The Limp Bizket effect. It kept rollin rollin rollin! Lol.
    It has colour changing lightening on it. Much better than the old one.
    The keyboard works ok. The mouse made it look worse than it was.

    So now to get a graphics card and some more RAM. He said it has a second slot and it has 4 RAM now. I will take it up to 8.
    So what search terms do I put in to sites to find the right graphics cards and RAM?
    What am I looking for to know its the right thing?
    I have been searching for the ones mentioned here.

    I want to play online and offline games. Dungeons And Dragons Online, Forsaken World, gamejolt, GOG, steam if I have to, bleh. Most are optimized to run on the lowest pcs anyway. I also need to do image editing, etc.
