if you can get the 2900XT, $100 bucks more but best for ya money.
2900XT is the worst video card for the money because

- It consumes a lot of power
- It produce a lot of heat
- It produce a lot of noise

Get the 8800GTS if you want the largest gaming performance gain...simple as that. The E6300 can be overclocked with motherboard later on but for now the 8 series card most definitely
