i think you get a nvidia 8800 for this.

@k0s if your motherboard supports it and you have the cooling for it, and a nvidia 8800 might be a good idea but i would def be lookin into a higher up one, maybe the 220GT or up, thats just me thought, on my 220GT i can play crysis, 1 and 2, and sadly i cant play call of duty due to the processor

"I have a core 2 duo e6300 1.86 ghz and I want you to tell me what graphic card ( affordable and has a good performance ^_^) should i buy to play the latest games like Crysis2 and call of duty black ops " - Well, my 5 PC's (2 x E6400, E3300, E7500, quad core i5-760) - All these PC's play both games real easy - you're right to ask about a suitable GPU, because thats where you get most benefit. My suggestion is check your Power Supply first, then available slots (can you fit two-slotter video card in the mobo?) Then start with a Nvidis GTX560Ti and work downwards towards a GT430 until you find a cost/power/size fit.

Me personally if you can do the extra $30 then this would be a good choice
in my humble opinion

I actually like the deal better on Newegg but you used Ebay so I used them

great low wattage card,has gddr5 for better memory bandwith,with a good OC is respectable at medium to high settings and anything more powerful would probably just be a bottleneck

also you have a factory tower so cant OC in BIOS
BUT
there is this for HP,Dell owners

this is a way of OCing factory computer
it will work if the motherboard supports the next higher FSB (800-1066,1066-1333)
of the FSB on your chip
If i remeber the E6400 is 1066
if your mobo supports 1333 (check HP support)
then you could easily get about an extra 600mhz out of it
though at your own risk

Hmm, never looked at eBay for graphics cards. All of them are overpriced. I guess the sellers figure that everyone will assume eBay has the best deals. Everytime I buy from someplace other than Newegg, a deal at Newegg pops up and I could have saved some bucks. I've learned to be patient. I've also learned that trying to mod a Dell or HP system isn't worth the effort. Sell it on eBay and build your own from scratch. Swap the hard drive out and keep the OS activation code.
