    I've managed to get my hands on a geforce 9600 GT, will this be compatible? Too much of a power draw? i've seen that it has a higher bench mark then the 440.

    Hmm, that depends. There is 2 versions, one is 300W and 1s 400W. That said, I just realized the 8300 isn't a dedicated card.

    You power supply might not be big enough for any card. You need to find out what size the psu is. I'm no longer going to help if you don't.

    Nothing against you, but thats a very important need info.

    Yha... Unfortunately when i found out the 8300 is on board, thats what I though.

    You may get a 520/420/430 to run on it, though nvidia does claim 300W. Sorry to run you this far, then switch on you.

    The minimum required psu, as stated by the companies, is 300W.

    This is where you may get by on the current psu, and the new gpu, but it is not a garrentee.

    You ned to decide how you want to go about it.. new gpu and risk it... or spend the cash and get both.

    I'm a bit confused, what would happen if i use the 9600 on the current supply? What are the draw back's?

    It might not boot. You could experience bsod, but nothing that is really damaging.

    If you have the 9600 for sure try it out. I just wouldnt want you to buy it and then find out it didn't work.
