Default Noob video card question

Hey guys!!!

I just need a little help here. I bought a computer one year ago and i want to upgrade my video card.

here are basic specs:

Processor: Intel 2.8Ghz HT

Mobo: Microstar MS-7046

RAM: (Factory) Samsung 2x256 single channel DDR, (added) value Corsair dual channel 2x512 DDR.

Video card: GeforceFX 5300

I think thats it. I hate this video card. I have to run games with little or no shadow's, force directx 7.0 shaders or something, and run graphics on mid to low most times.

I have read some reviews and i am thinking of going with a XFX 6800GT PCI-e card. should i go with this card or what. I know any card will give me improvement over this one. would you go with another brand??????????????????

I'm new at this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
