This card is cheaper and better thank your card: - XFX HD-487A-YWFC Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

but if you can maybe spend $10 more than your current card, you can get the 1GB version. And you REALLY need at least 2gbs of memory, so get a cheap 2 X 1GB kit.

I know it is twice the price but 2x1gb of faster ram is well worth it. - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ - Desktop Memory
