If you want to play WOW then the 3470 will work fine and be a cheap upgrade.If you want to play Crysis then save your money and upgrade the hole system.

MAKE SURE THAT THE CARD YOU GET IS ATLEAST GDDR3! the gddr2 versions usually cost the same, but have more memeory, but a 256mb GDDR3 8600GT will PWN a 512mb GDDR2 8600GT (its the same for all cards that have a gddr2 and gddr3 version)

8500 and 8600 cards = fail. A buddy at school bought an 8600GTS from BestBuy because they said it was a great card. He later found out it couldn't play WoW smoothly that much smoother then his onboard could.

I say find a G80GTS for cheap ($120 on newegg) or any HD3xxx should work. I love my new 3870

Most commonly advertised spec if watts, though both wattage and amperage are important (in addition to efficiency, hold-up time, etc.) The amps we're most concerned about are those on whats called the +12v rail - basically, the part of the PSU that puts out 12 volt power.
