The best on the market right now are the Geforce 7800 GTX 512mb and the ATI 1900XTX 512mb. I would wait on the 7900 though.

Do you REALLY need 650 watts of psu? As they've mentioned before, 4 gig RAM is even slower than 2 gigs, which is why most people would just buy 2 gigs with heatsinks... I don't think your sig understand there's no such thing as a "P4 Duel Core" processor, duel cored intel processors are labeled "Intel Pentium D" and I won't even go into how much everybody hates intel.

Lol, some friendly advise...get a amd for you next processor. It looks like you have some money so get something like
amd64 x2 4400+.
As mentioned before cut down on the ram and new gfx cards are being released soon if your upgrading.

@theshonen8899 It depends on what he uses his pc for...he may need the 650watt- as long as its a good one
