  1. What's your goal for upgrading?
    And what is your upgrade budget?

    Gateway FX7026 Desktop PC
    Core 2 Quad Q9300(2.50GHz) 4GB DDR2 640GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
    Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
    specs: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1015336R/1015336Rsp2.shtml

  3. +1 WR2 for posting specs. Agree with asking usage, will assume gaming is the intent.

    Not a bad gaming system, just needs stronger video. This PC comes with a Power Supply = 400 Watt that supports a factory overclocked 8800GT.

    You can buy and install any card from this list that (1) has less than 200 watts TDP and (3) is at least 3 tiers higher than the 8800GT in the hierarchy chart on the last page of this article. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html

    Suggest you spend around $150 for this HD6850 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html But spending more will get you more.
