To be doing any decent gaming you'll need at least a GTX 460, a GTX 550ti ot in the worst possible case, a GTX 260. And those start at $130. Keep in mind also that if you want to upgrade your CPU, you'll have to go with an older series dual-core.

As kramkat said, what is you budget? Also, what games do you plan on playing and at what resolution?

A bit late with the reply, but GT cards nowadays are only entry-level. GTX is where the power's at.
