  Video card upgrade for Acer Aspire AM1641-E1610B

My gf would like to play some games like Sims 3 for instance and smooth youtube videos it has a pcie 16x slot however I have no idea on what psu this system has does anyone know? Her budget is around $60-$80 and of course getting a new psu is out of the question. I was thinking a 9600gt or 4770 would be good but I don't know what I can put in yet.

Well, i cant find the pc specs through google. But considering it is fairly new, it should be able to handle either of those cards since it already has a 7050 in it.

The easiest way to find what psu is in the pc is to just look.
Then when you look up a card it should say minimum psu specs.
