Default Suggested upgrades

I just bought this http://www.Newegg.com/Product/ComboD...ist=83-227-442 with the intention of buying some upgrades. I was going to build it my self but this seemed like a good starting point. A graphics card will be first followed by a motherboard. Probably both at the same time. Any suggestions as to which? I'm looking to spend around 100 on each. I will also be getting another ps too.

How well will this work it for me?

Link isn't working for me at the moment.

P.S you should get this moved to general hardware and fill out the sticky.

I'd leave the motherboard alone and sink the money into the video card.

Maybe a HD 7850...

I can't really tell much about your power supply, hopefully it can handle the load. If not a new PS would be then next purchase.

The ps is only 300 so if I bought a card requiring power I would have to add a new one

Yeah, that power supply is way too small to do much of anything with. So, a new good quality power supply needs to be your first purchase. I'd then go with a new video card if you are into gaming. There is no need to upgrade the motherboard as long as it works and has the features you need, so I'd move it on down the list for now.

Are you able to determine the actual manufacturer and model of the motherboard?
