Get some more another 2Gb stick of RAM, and a new PSU first.

He could get away with running an HD4670/HD5750/HD6750 on a 400W, the 4670 doesn't require a 6pin the others will come with adaptors for the 6pin, I ran a Sapphire HD4670 in an Athlon II x3 system and it ran crysis at high on a 1366x768 monitor.

But I would definately reccomend getting another 2 gig stick of ram, so atleast you can run in dual channel mode. and if you can afford it, an 80+ certified PSU wou;dnt be a bad idea to future proof your self.

Is your 2 GB memory one or two sticks?
If just one stick then get another 2 GB stick.
Windows 7 or Windows XP - Unless running 64-bit os you won't see all of the 4 GB memory.

I would upgrade the power supply also since if you blow it, you can take out other components with it.

Pretty much any of the ones elpcavy21 mentioned would work for ya.

I would recommend to add another 2GB memory, and buy a AMD Radeon HD6670 graphics card with 1GB GDDR5 memory. You will get the card at around USD 100 and it would give you exceptional performance in 1366*768 resolution. And also you don't need to bother about spending for a new PSU with 6 or 8 pin PCI-e power connector.

32-bit OS cannot use full 4GB memory, but at least it would increase 1.25GB than the previous. :) 

Cheers.....

thanks everyone :) 

my os is 32 bit win7and ram is single 2gb, increasing the ram by another 2gb and buying HD6750 would allow me to play those games at high settings..is that correct.

2gb ram + 5670/6670, that will run games well and is all you need for that resolution, you also wont need to upgrade the PSU. the only thing missing is a quad core CPU, some new games like COD black ops and Crysis 2 dont run well on dual core CPU's. Most games will run ok though.

thanks all :) 
i'm lukng around $100-120, so i have 4 choices now i.e 5750/6750 or 6670/5670...if i'm not wrong x7xx is better than x6xx and 6000 series is new that makes going for 6750 a better option ...can i make that assumption

your power supply wont have enough power for the 5750/6750. forget it. get the 6670/5670. and just fyi the 6750 is a re-badged 5750, same as the 6770/5770. the 6670 is slightly faster than the 5670, its not just a re-badge. You MUST upgrade the ram also, put another 2gb in.
