Problem - upon start up get a series of black flashes with a system icon that says "Recovered from graphic card failure etc etc" into BSOD. Sometimes when I restart, it'll go straight to BSOD. It'll keep BSODing almost immediately as soon as I get back to the startup screen.
I tried updating the driver, it still BSOD, so currently I removed the driver altogether and am the vga mode thing, and it's been stable
Is it pretty set that I need a new graphics card now? If so, what can my computer support. The forums picked this out for me in 2011.

Website says my current GFX requires 450W. I'm at 430. The midsized - enthusiast cards on TomsHardware says 500W min - this means I can't go for any of them without getting a bigger power supply?
