The 7770 is a nice recommendation. Pretty damn cheap nowadays and surprisingly capable.

Certainly wouldn't want anything more powerful, no. Not until some upgrades are done.

Go step by step

=> Replace your mobo with a nice G41 or G45 chipset mobo from Gigabyte or Asus

=> Buy a pair of DDR3 Ram sticks (4x2 is enough)

=> Buy a decent CPU cooler (cooler master txt 3 )

=> Overclock your CPU to at least 3.6 Ghz ( ALL PRESENT HIGH GRAPHICS GAMES REQUIRE A PROCESSOR AT LEAST 3GHZ)

=> then buy a Radeon HD 7770 Ghz edition from SAPPHIRE

Your upgrade budget will be as good as Rs 12000/-

Now your PC is ready to take on any game at midium and high setting
