for graphics card now anything better then what you have your gunna need a new PSU i would suggest like a 550 at least i would go with a 600 though and with that system you should be able to play pretty much anything.

I'd upgrade the PSU if I were upgrading the graphics anymore. I tried my 8800GT on my server with a 430W PSU to test something, but when I plugged it in and hooked everything up, there wasn't even a POST. I'm guessing lack of power with the PSU. The same system runs fine with my 7600GT.

You'll need at least 530 watts... you can get one for $50 on Newegg. I would suggest 650W+ and then get a 5850 or 5870 for beast performance, maybe two 5770's in crossfire if you want to go that route.
