Is a 400 Watt PSU enough to run a GX2?

Please tell me you have a 17" CRT, please

Waste of money, you could get a good mobo, proc and GFX for the price of a GX2.

Yup, I would totally do an update, like what grunion said, before getting a GX2.

It will be overkill and a waste of money. I recommend spending the money towards a better system overall.

Thanks for advice everyone!

I don't think my computer is worth upgrading, I just wanted to have a good video card.
After all, I'm just 15 and don't have much budget.
So, not much use?

Nope. As mentioned in post #6, what size monitor are you using? Just curious.
