I see I would also need to upgrade my PSU from 250w to 400W.
Rough cost of PSU + a new GPU is around $100 - $150.
Maybe time to get a new PC?
One of my htpc's doesn't go above 90w. It's using an AMD X2 cpu and a 8400GS 512MB pci-e card. As a matter of fact don't think any of my boxes go much higher then that.
