    what do you consider a fairly decent price?

    Edit=1
    Based on what you have, and me just throwing out there something that has good performance that won't break the bank, I'd go with one of these:

    I've had very good luck with a Nvidia 9800 GTX.

    My machine runs 24/7, and when I'm not gaming, the card crunches SETI data with CUDA code at 100% capacity.

    So 18 months of continuous operation, roughly 75% of that time spent doing a CUDA/SETI burn test.

    I have yet to find a game it won't run at 30+ FPS at near max graphics.

    the double slot 9800GT w/ 1GB Ram is also a good buy.

    Just ducking in to say, "Shame on you" Chile, starting flame wars!

    Not being a computer hardware wiz, I think its safe to use other peoples advice before using mine.
