I have an Intel Core Duo E6550 on a Asus PK5 with 4Ghz of ddr2 RAM. I'd like to upgrade my nVidia 7600GS 512Ghz Memory for better performance. Is it worth it? And with which graphic card (budget around 100€)? I was thinking about GAINWARD - GeForce GT 240 512 Mb ddr3 (70€)
Thanks for the answers and sorry for my bad english

I'm from italy, maybe i'll buy the card on http://www.eprice.it/.
My monitor is a SyncMaster 2494HS 1920*1080 native, the power supply is an old 400W
Ati 5750 is very intesting, thanks for the advice. However my doubt is if it will improve appreciably the performances with such a slow cpu...
Thanks for all the answers
Depending on what power supply you have i'm not certain you will be able to run a 5750. It might have to be upgraded... A high quality unit could run the 5750--a older generic may not be able to. You would have to post us its amperage on the 12v rail.
The 5670 is a little slower, but has much lower power use--I think it would probably be a good option for you.
With a new card your processor may slow you down a little--but the graphic card will still give you a major performance boost from what you have.
An added benefit of this is that with a stable power supply you could overclock your processor-- making it run faster. (but hotter) I didnt look up your chipset--but it is also possible that you could get a newer core 2 processor to replace the one you have.
