I would go with something like the ATI HD4670 or the 9600GT from Nvidia. It also depends on your PSU. Around 400W should cover any of those two cards and any card higher than these two would bottleneck your system, IMO.

If you can find a Palit 4670, I think it has 3-4 different types of connectors so you might not even need an adapter.

If typical of other Slackard-Hell PCs I've seen, the PSU will be undersized. You may be limited to an ATI HD4670. That's not a bad card; it seems unlikely you're trying to play the latest games on high settings on high resolution, so for movies, video, and older games I think you'll be happy.

Your motherboard has a PCIe X16 slot available, so you have many options.
About the only thing we need to know now is what is your PSU rated?
I believe that it is only 250watt, which is very low.
What do you mean by better video quality? "better quality and color" may simply mean you need a new monitor. If it is speed you are looking for, then a new GPU may be helpful, but that PSU is not going to run a very powerful video card.

I would agree with the 4670 it dosent need any extra power to run and if you have the standard 17" Monitor that usually comes with that type of system then it will easilly run most games at a very good detail and quality level.
This fits the bill http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...(PCI-Express)%20-%20Retail

i have a PSU FSP250-60GEN 250W?
December 10, 2008 12:45:21 PM

From what I have read, the D 820 consumes more power than almost any processor. I'm surprised it works right now.....Your PSU will not allow the best video cards. Just order a new one with the video card. Do a search and you'll find plenty of info on that. Maybe think about a Core 2 unit also. That processor won't do justice with a top notch video card.

Did you think about a new computer? :D

Fawcett, you are at the point that so many of us have found ourselves. That is whether to put new fresh money into an old system or start over with a clean fresh group of components and a new system. As stated above several good options were given for a new VC as well as the probable requirements. Consider poking around on one of the big etailer sites for a new system. You may be perfectly happy with just this upgrade and if you are we all support that and are happy for you. However some of the new stuff is really terrific and you might be amazed at what a difference a new Intel or AMD 2 or 4 core system is compared to what you have now. Take a look at some of the new build threads here on the forums. There are recommendations at just about every price point. As well as builder articles around this and other tech sites.

A couple of benchmark links to give you a compairson of systems. Your CPU is included.
