I have a 22 inch Monitor so I play at a 1680 x 1050 resolution. The rest of my system is as follows: Here is the video card: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

If you can hold out for another 6 months there will likely be new cards that would be a more significant step up. On the other hand, if you can get a good price for your current cards (try craigslist people are always overcharging for computer hardware on that site) then it might be worth it.
