I would recommend that you go to GTS250. If you experience a CPU bottleneck then you could always raise the multiplier on that FX so it runs at 3.0 GHz

What's your budget? A Radeon 5770 would be a good upgrade for you. Even so, you should consider overclocking your CPU since that is what it was meant for.

Even a little 9800gt would be light years faster than your 7900gtx. I used to have 3 7900gs that I used in 2 way sli with the third in another machine and two 7900gtx duo (first dual gpu card before 7950gx2) all of which is faster than your card. The 9800gt blew them all away so the GTS250 would be all that much better. Also a 5770 is you want to spend the money.
