We need to know what you want to use the graphics card for. We need to know your screen resolution. And we need to know your make and model of Power supply you have.

I'm afraid that you can't really be a "die hard gamer" with current CPU, however, you do only have a 19 inch monitor so Im guessing that your resolution is 1440 x 900, do you have fifa 12? What settings can you play that game on? It's not really a game that needs a powerful setup, and I doubt that FIFA 13 will require much much more than FIFA 12. What other games are you wanting to play?

You have a budget of up to $8000?
With that kind of cash i would start a whole system re-haul before worrying about the GPU. You are running an old dual core. I suspect any graphics card you put in will be bottlenecked by the CPU. Drop in to the Systems forum and look at the sticky at the top. Make a new thread using that template, and no doubt they will find the best way to spend that cash (which is way too much for a gaming rig BTW).

But for a single monitor, a GTX670 is the card to get. If multiple monitors (gaming across them, not just an extended desktop) is a consideration, a HD7970. Gigabyte, Sapphire, ASUS, MSI are all good manufacturers to pick from.

Though if that budget is a typo, you would do better investing the cash into a better CPU. At the very least it will allow you to upgrade the card without the fear of bottle-necking.

You don't understand that even if you do get a better GPU, your CPU will quite likely bottleneck it so it won't necessarily increase your gaming performance that much at all.

Best GPU in that price range is the HD7770. Its power draw is tiny so it shouldnt pose a problem with your PSU.
Sapphire HD7770. $150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That should play games much better than the GTX210 (I think thats the oldest card that is still available trough mainstream means). At that resolution it will perform quite well.
Though most likely if you get any stronger graphics cards (maybe already), the CPU will bottleneck it without doubt. Quite simply, that old dual core wont be able to keep up with that card, and performance wont improve.

And if you want it, here's my recommendation for a cheap platform upgrade. An AMD Phenom II x4 965 and an AsRock 970 Pro3 motherboard (~$180 estimate). That will be better than those old Intel CPU's and will give you an easy upgrade path to Bulldozer and Piledriver CPU's.

No.

Dual cores (except maybe the Core i3 series) will most likely bottleneck any decent GPU you put to it.

That platform upgrade I recommended will get you a decent (if old) quad core that has the capability of letting games hit max settings.
If you want max settings in games you will need a full platform upgrade, not just a new graphics card.

At that resolution it may be possible, but if you play a game that is CPU intensive, the graphics card wont matter.

EDIT: Windows Experience Index is a horrible indicator of performance. Dont even bother using it as a benchmark.
