    It depends how good a graphics card you want and what motherboard and hard drive manufacturer you choose. Also the case and PSU will cost varying amounts on the manufacturer.

    Please be a bit more specific as to what you are wanting you pc to have.

I'm a new expert to this site ... so I apologize if I'm stepping on the previous expert's toes, but as I've recently built a new PC fitting your description I have a very good feel for the current going rates.

I'll give you a description & ballpark estimate for a low-priced modern high performance PC with good overclocking capabilities & upgrage potential. It's what I would call a starter system with which you can explore the home computer market's latest and greatest hardware features. As you gain experience with this system and learn which of its features and components are the most important for your computer use it's extremely likely that you'll add things like; more ram, additional video cards and other pci cards, fans and other coooling solutions, hard drives, etc...
to optimize the system to your exact liking. The following is a very good starting point however.

You'll need all of the following:

1) Motherboard that supports a modern multi-core processor, multiple graphics cards, up to 8GB of ddr2 RAM. It should have built in hi-def audio, multiple USB ports (I prefer at least 8), multiple SATA ports (I like at least 4), at least one IDE connector, at least 2 PCIe 16x 2.0 slots, and a built in gigabit netword controller. I'm not including all the features that these boards usually come with ... once you've constrained yourself to the above requirements the type of board you want will become clear.

2) CPU & CPU fansink ... I reccomend a dual core processor that clocks at 2.5GHz or faster. It will most likely come with a stock fansink which work just fine in my experience.

3) 2 GB of DDR2 RAM ... I suggest 800 MHz ram from a reputable high performance name brand

4) A modern graphics card that supports a multiple graphics card configuration (ie, you can buy a 2nd card later, connect it to the 1st one and get an impressive increase in performance). It should have at least 512 MB DDR3 RAM & a GPU that clocks at 600 MHz or greater.

5) A case. There's a huge variety of products available in this category. It really depends on your personal tastes. I reccomend starting with a mid-ATX tower with a price tag under $100.

6) A power supply unit (PSU). I suggest getting getting a supply that has at least 2 PCI express connectors, 4-6 SATA connectors and can put out at least 500 W ... more if you can afford it ... mine is 750 W and I wish it was 850 W.

7) 250 GB hard drive ... get a SATA II drive with at least 16 MB of cache and spins at 7200 RPM.

8) Optical drive ... I suggest a SATA dvd/cd reader/writer ... that is, it can read and write both CDs & DVDs. Also, there's a technology called lightscribe where you flip the disc over and the burner actually burns labels onto the disc that look very professional. It doesn't cost more than an extra 5 or 10 dollars.

9) Keyboard & mouse ... whatever you're comfortable with. I like a large keyboard with a soft keys that light up. A standard optical or laser mouse with 3 or moure buttons and 1 or more scroll wheels.

All of the above will run you approximately $1000. You'll have to shop around on-line to get the price down to $1k ... but it can be done. At the end of the day you'll have a very powerful & expandable PC that's capable of running any of your favorite programs.

Hope this helps ... let me know if I can clarify anything. I've done my best not to promote any particular brands or products as I believe it's considered poor form to do so on this site.

I nned to increase the possibilities of grafic card for working with programs that have image treatment and others and need a better grafic card

In your case, you can upgrade your system ram or memory bu not the graphic card.Upgrading your system ram or memory will boost your application loading and performance. Example your memory right is 1GB so make it 3GB by purchasing a 2GB ram. You will see the difference but do not expect to for the graphics just for faster loading and better performance can only give your memory. Have a nice day.

It seems like you have either a thermal problem (processor cooler defective, undersized or incorrectly mounted) or a defective power supply. I'm about 90% sure that the problem is thermal.

Graphics card.

In case you did not receive my solution for what card you need: Your PC has a slot for a PCI express graphics card. Any PCI express card should work in your PC. The price will vary depending on what kind of performance you require from the card.

ASUS P5L-VM 1394 mother

Here is a link to a website that identifies the specs for your motherboard, and also identifies the type of processors that are compatible with your motherboard. It is Intel Core 2 duo/ Intel Core 2 duo Extreme capable.

It looks like you have a good candidate for a gaming pc, in my opinion. I would suggest that you upgrade the memory to its max of 4 GB. This link also has a list of all compatible memory modules for your motherboard, If you click on a memory module, there is an option on the next page to tell you where you can buy it and for how much.
