    ^Get that card, you wont be dissappointed. Also note that a new PSU will be necessary if you are adding this to a pre built system.

    What are your other pc specs?

    Oh sorry. PSU is just short for power supply unit. I would recommend a Corsair 450 or HX520. Both are of high quality and get excellent reviews on all sites I have seen them on.

    You should get the 3850 512mb. You wont be let down.

    I wanted to see your specs just to make sure you didnt have a Pentium 4, so your graphics card doesnt get bottlenecked. Also, do indeed get the 2GB of ram.

    An Antec 500W unit will be fine.
