Like Rican, Maroon, and others have suggested. Add a 9800GTX+ or a 4850 and you'll be set for gaming. At any resolution 1920x1200 and below, which is a 24" monitor.

That set up should handle any game out and coming out (except crysis) for the next year or two.

It's not the best card out there but it can play most games at medium/high settings.

What is your GPU budget?

At 1440x900 it should max out just about everything except Crysis and Warhead.
