I saw this for $50 dollars at Office Max and i want to know how much of an upgrade this would be from and Nvidia 7050. Also does the 8400 come with dual monitor support.

It has dual monitor support, and it's better than your 7050. But it's a waste of $50. If you want a gaming-friendly card, you're going to have go a little higher. You can find used 8800GT's for around that price, and those are excellent cards.

By the time summer rolls around, current graphics cards will be three full generations ahead of that 8400 GS, which was pretty crappy even when the 8-series was brand new.

Oh wait, I think I know which one that is. That's that PCI version, which means that it's definitely not worth $50.

If you have AGP, you need to make sure any card you have is AGP, not PCIE

Get a 9600Gt, it's really worth the money, and easier to find than used 8800's.

Make sure your powersupply has at least 400w, a PCI-e connector, and that your motherboard has a PCI-e slot.

What games are you planning to play?

And $50 for a 8400 is too much, newegg has them for $30. I think your best bet would be too look around eBay for a good deal. I just looked and there are a ton of 8800GT's going for anywhere from $50-70.

Hehe, and you say you have a 1.6 Ghz CPU? I might be able to get away with that on low/lowest settings, and your rig looks like a big step down from that. My advice; start saving, you're gonna need a whole new setup.
