computer upgrades and how much?

I am thinking about adding a second hard drive and upgrading my video card. Im going on the assumption I need to change out the power supply. I was wondering what would be a good video card to upgrade to as I currently have an amd radeon hd 7350? I don't play a lot of video games but i notice the ones I have run slow.

    Well, what is your budget? I would recommend buying a xfx 550 core series, or a corsair cx500m, whichever is cheaper. They should run you about $50

    A great gpu for $110 is the 650ti boost, much better than the 7770, it will run all modern games, not maxed out, but at high settings, it will do great. If you're buying in Canada, grab the 7850, its sells for cheaper and performs about the same

    Now if you have more money to spare, buying a samsung 840 evo ssd would be great for $100/$140 CA. In conjunction with your current hdd, you use this ssd to store your OS and a few games. This will drastically reduce loading and startup times; you will be able to boot in under 20 seconds. However this is an optional upgrade and I would really focus on buying the psu and gpu above.

    You can pick up a 1TB hard drive for under £70, I'd recommend at least a 750w Power supply and I run an AMD 7770HD which runs skyrim on high. If you need any more help just ask :-)

    como estoy apasionada del mundo de los ordenadores me gusta hacer mi propia configuración de ordenador, como todos las otras componentes los he comprado de sitios web y han sido excelentes, el hard disk también lo compre aquí, el hard disk es exactamente como esperaba, muy buena compra.
