If you're looking to play future games, definitely the graphic card, to an 8800GTS 320mb. And maybe a more powerful PSU. But I think that's sufficient for an 8800GTS.

8800GTS 320MB and maybe Corsair 520HX/620HX? But like b1gapl has said, your FSP 450W should hold up the 8800GTS.

You know it. Great Customer service, awesome Warranty, and a really confusing Step-Up program (maybe that's just me).
