    Nothing from what I can see a GT240 should work fine.

    What the hell is a 470GT?? There is a GTX 470, but you need a new PSU and your CPU will start bottlenecking.

    Power supply might need to be looked at for that, you would really be better off upgrading to a AMD quad core and 6670 if you can spend ~150

    I'd update your BIOS, get a 955BE or something and get some GPU, but idk.

    I've got the 975BE, it overclocks to 4.3Ghz. Its a bit of a monster for an AMD chip.
