Ok, you will have to upgrade your Power supply as well. if you want to get a card that is worth anything. In order for us to make suggestions. It would be nice to know what kind of games/activites you are doing or plan to do with this computer. also still knowing roughly how much you have to spend will help to.
this is your memory upgrade information

mostly for my son to play his games. at the moment he plays world of tanks, and wants to play skyrim. the OS is windows home premium 64bit. im trying to stay around 300 if possible if not then it is what it is and ill go a little more.
You are kind of limited by your cpu. Anything to strong for a graphics card will just get bottlencked. this would be my suggestion with your current build. Unless you upgrade your processor spending any more on a graphics card would be a waste. i feel the 6670 might get bottlenecked a bit.
