Default Need help want to upgrade my graphics card

Hi all,

I play alot of old school counter strike, but want to play the newer and better graphical games so want to upgrade my card. I'm not good on hardware so would like some suggestions and see if these cards would work on my current hardware.

My motherboard is: ASRock G31M-GS
Processor is: quad core can go up to round 10Ghz
Physical Memory : 4096 MB (2 x 2048 DDR2-SDRAM )
Operating system: Xp Professional
Voltage CPU : 1.26 V
+3.3V Voltage : 3.26 V
+12V Voltage : 8.29 V

I think this is computer infromation is enough but anymore needed please ask ^.^

My friend told me that an upgrade to an Nvidia 9800 card would be good but theres loads of them when I was looking.

Looking on UK amazon I found these:
Zotac GeForce 9800GT Synergy Edition 1 GB Graphics Card
Zotac GeForce 9800GT Synergy Edition 1 GB Graphics Card: Electronics & Photo

nVIDIA GeForce 9800GT Graphics Card - 1GB GDDR3 - PCI-E - 256-Bit - Dual DVI - VISTA READY - 600MHz GPU - 1800MHz Memory clock - HDCP - HDTV
Inno3D nVIDIA GeForce 9800GT Graphics Card - 1GB GDDR3: Electronics & Photo

Or if my P.C is to weak please could you suggest some.

Thanks all for ur time reading and replying

What power supply do you have? is 100 quid your budget? for just over 100 a ati 5750 would be a far better choice.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
