Hi guys!

I am new on these forum and would like some advice. These are my current specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
4x 1GB DDR2 RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT 1GB
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz
1 TB HDD
A cheap 500w (i don't believe it's 500w) power supply
I would like to get some advice on what graphics card I could upgrade to for around £150 ($240) preferably nVidia. I am also upgrading my power supply would I need a 500w or a 600w supply? I was thinking of http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/powersupplies/nov-psg500.html . Additionally I'm looking for a good SSD drive around 120GB to use for Windows and other main programmed, could someone recommend me one that is not too expensive? Around £80 ($130). Will my processor be good enough as well as the RAM for the new upgrade?

Will the change improve my ingame FPS or would I have to upgrade my processor as well?

Thank you so much!

Markus :D

decent ram Is probably gonna be a solid 8 gigs more than that is probably too much but it depends on the programs u run. sometimes 6 gigs is good as well.
