If you go with the HD 4670, you'll be able to play WAR very nicely, and any other game you want to play. It's also only about 80 bucks, and a 300w power supply can handle it, so you don't have to replace anything else.

I guess this is all I need. I'll probably be ordering the Graphics card, and WAR tonight!

Thanks everyone.

Maybe its time for an Nvidia card

Since everything seems to be optimized for them.

Default Re: Help with CPU and GPU upgrades.

I suggest this video card
Newegg.com - ASUS EN9600GT TOP/HTDI/512M GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

It cost the same as HD4670 but performs much better

EDIT: Here are some reviews that have both 9600GT and HD4670 benchmarked
Review 1
Review 2
