Best possible upgrade

Hi there!

I currently have the following system:

CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE
RAM: 4x2GB DDR2-1066 Kingston HyperX
Sound: OnBoard
LAN: OnBoard
Graphics: OnBoard
PowerSupply: Eurotech V70 Modular PRO 900W

On my free time I love to play games like Crysis, Fallout 3, The Sims 3, UT3, etc...

I'm looking to find the best upgrade now possible for my system so I can be assured I'll have a newest game power play system on my hand for the longest time possible.

Only one constraint:
I'm not looking to replace the components I already have just adding.

So in conclusion I here asking for your advice on what to buy to create the best play system for the longest time have as base what I already have.

Thanks in advance!

  1. A discrete GPU is what you need, before I recommend one what is your budget?
  2. I've save quite some...

    I can go up to an maximum of about 700€ (~950USD).
  3. GTX580 is within your grasp then but maybe not needed based on your monitor resolution. Which is?

  4. Oh! Sorry!
    I've missed that point...

    It's a TV-Monitor Samsung SyncMaster TA350 FullHD capable of going up to 1920x1080.
  5. An euro 250 card GTX560TI or HD6950 1GB would handle that fine but it is a question how much you want to spend. (I recommend that you look through the article I linked before)
