Replace the graphic card and PSU, with these:

Newegg.com - EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX ATX12V V2.2 550W Power Supply 90 - 264 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

And you're good to go.

Yeah the 640mb card shows little improvement over the 320.

the 640mb is a waste imo.
It has barely proven better results in benchmarks.

If you plan on spending the money on a 640, just get a 2900xt instead. The 320mb version will be more than enough to run pretty much every game coming out this year and well up until the new cards come out next year.
