Im looking for recomendations for a better Graphic card that will work with this system and the new power supply.

Re: Best video card

I hope the Corsair PSU works in your system.  I have read other posts that some have had some grounding issues with the Corsair 400CX.  I have had no issues with the Coolermaster Elite 460 in my Vostro.

As for a graphics card for $100, I would look at the ATI Radeon HD-5670, or maybe an Nvidia 240GT with DDR5.  If you could stretch your budget a bit, the RAdeon HD-5750 is nice.  I am looking forward to getting mine back.
