    Looks universal. The PSU pulled out from a new ast180 that I know of is a Delta Electronics DPS-250AB that is a standard 12V ATX power supply.

    Do not use a PCI graphics card, it is SLOW in games. PCIe cards are fast. Some options:

    Cheap: 8400GS, 8500GT, HD2400 Pro

    Better: HD2600XT, 8600GTS
