list the system specs espeacially power supply unit.
but im gunna consider u have a good psu that can handle low powered cards:
gt240 DDR3\DDR5
HD 5670 DDR5
HD 5570 DDR3\DDR5
gt220 DDR3
those will suffice to play at mid high settings with a good resolution

u should be able to run a gt240 or an HD 5570 on that psu. with no problems and i also suggest upgrading ur cpu to a more recent one as the one u already have is old and heats a lot,

Are you sure you want to invest in that system? The CPU is outdated, the board only supports up to 2GB RAM (not nearly enough for Vista or Win7), the onboard graphics sucks, & the power supply is weak.

At the very least, you need to max the RAM aount, & add a low end gaming card such as the ones listed by toxict51. If you want to run a higher end graphics card, you will have to upgrade the power supply. But there's no point into going too high end with the card though because it will be bottlenecked by the crappy Pentium D.

I agree with above posters, just get gt 220 ddr3 and call it a day.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.
