Solved Upgrading HP Pavilion Elite m9150f GPU?

Specs: Windows Vista 32bit, Core 2 Quad Q6600/ 3gb
I want to buy a new graphics card for my current computer. The graphics card in my computer is the Ge Force 8500GT and it can't play any new games on good settings with a decent frame rate. So, me not knowing much, I don't know what a good graphics card that would be compatible with my computer would be. I need a graphics card for PC gaming. I want to be able to play games like Fable 3 and The Witcher 2 on pretty good settings with a 1900x1200 resolution or pretty close as that's my monitors native resolution. Also would like to be able to play Diablo 3 when it comes out.

I've searched around to try and pick one but all the weird numbering confuses me and I don't know the difference of one card or the other. Another major problem is I don't know if it would even be compatible with my computer. I should also mention that I have almost no experience with computer hardware, the only time I've switched anything inside my computer was to replace the hard drive, but that's not to say I couldn't figure out how to replace a graphics card.

So any help would be greatly appreciated, and if anyone would be so kind as to help me out and recommend a few graphics cards that'd be great.

And I'm aware that I'll most likely have to replace my PSU and in that case if someone could recommend a PSU to go with the GPU that'd be great. Also forgot to mention I have a budget of around $200 for both.

Thanks for any advice in advance and heres a url to all the info on my computer from HP:

Once again, thanks!

EDIT: Oh, almost forgot I also need a HDMI out port as that's what I'm currently using on my computer however a DVI port would be okay as well.

I've already read that but I don't know if those will work with my computer. Even then, I don't really know if that's what I need.

✔ Best Answer
Everything you need to know is in that article. All the cards are PCI-e & your board has a PCI-e x16 slot, what else do you need to know? The best cards within certain price ranges have already been picked for you. Just go with a Radeon HD 5670 with DDR5 memory & you won't even have to upgrade the PSU.
