For gaming min cards ATI HD4650/70 or HD5570. GT220 falls right in between the HD4650/70 cards. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card,... but I would recommend minimum GT240 or HD5670 both cards have a low power draw and would run of a good quality 300watt PSU

Need more info, primarily:

Monitor resolution & Power Supply make/model (or wattage and amperage specs by voltage).

Can't recommend a card properly without knowing if your system can power it or the resolution you intend to use while gaming. It would also help to know what CPU it'll be paired with to avoid the possibility of "bottlenecking" issues. (Such an ugly word - bottlenecking.)
