Hi! I'm looking to upgrade an Acer Aspire X3990 to better handle more modern games (not necessarily on high graphics or anything, but to make it a little more playable).

Its current specs are:

I was thinking of upgrading the CPU to an i5, upping RAM to 8GB, and installing a new graphics card potentially a Nvidia GTX 970. The problem is that it requires a minimum PSU of 500W and I believe the current PSU is only 220W -- are there any recommendations for a PSU that will fit the smaller case? Or would I have a better bet buying a bigger case and just reusing parts?
