I also have the same system and i'm planning to upgrade my video card too I was wondering would the ATI 4670 work with a 375 watt power supply?

I have 9800 gt OC and works great, and yes it would work on it. Dell PSU are overhead type PSU so they have something like 440 watt PSU.

Re: Need Video Card Recommendation for Dimension 9100

I would give a new video card a try first and see if it meets your needs.  You can always put it into another system down the road if you want.  Don't bother with the HD 4550.  Even the HD 4670 is old now, but certainly much better than the HD 4550. Most video cards today have 1GB of memory so the difference between 512mb and the latter are not much anymore.  I would look at the HD 5670 HERE as it will play the games without a problem.  See video HERE.  Your only problem is that you're stuck with an old Pentium 4.  I don't know how much system ram you have.  If you are running XP, then 2 GB should be plenty.
