can you post your actual Specs like your CPU, Graphics, etc?
I can't find anything definitive for that system, specs seem to be all over the board.
but the one thing that is consistent is the Mini Tower design.
this is going to prevent you from having any DECENT options, including upgrading and installing the Power supply.
for that $150 max budget, depending on what CPU you currently have, you could get a new, more roomier case, and decent PSU upgrade along with a decent graphics card (Depending on what you already have).
I'm assuming this graphics card upgrade is intended for gaming, as most are, but we never know unless someone says so.
Newegg.com - Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX Computer Case w/ 1 x 120mm fan
Newegg.com - HEC Blitz Black Steel Edition ATX Mid Tower Computer Chassis Gaming Case w/ Front Blue LED 120mm Fan & Top 120mm Fan
Newegg.com - Refurbished: XFX HD 675X ZAF4 Radeon HD 6750 1GB PCI Express 2.1 x16 Video Card
Newegg.com - Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply
Not including shipping, its only a few bucks over the $150 max (with the Fractal Design case).
but worth it.
Otherwise the HEC Blitz case is a decent cheap mid tower case, plenty of airflow and cooling.
if you were able to muster another $10-20 more.
Newegg.com - Refurbished: XFX HD 677X ZNLC Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Instead of the 6750.
If you were able to get $180 give or take a few bucks, I'd recommend a Radeon HD 7750 instead, as its a bit more powerful than the 6770, and runs at about half its power consumption, not that the 450W Antec can't handle the 6770, but it would reduce the power consumption and heat output of the system.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green

Oops, sorry yeah I should've done that first ok here are the specs,
CPU: AMD Athlon TMX2 7550 dual-core processor
Graphic Card: Nvidia GeForce 9200
Operating system: Windows 7 (originally Windows vista)
My intention for getting a new graphics card is for Pc gaming your correct. Im planning on getting Guild Wars 2 and im hoping you could find at least a Decent enough Graphics card thats cheap and will be able to play Guild Wars 2 to its top settings. I have money issues right now that's basically why I'm asking if the price range could be cheaper. I agree with you the mini tower case I currently have wont be able to do upgrading so I will take your advice on buying those cases you've recommended for me. One problem is i am not to sure how to install anything inside the new case lol im quite new to all this.
