Best suitable graphics card update for my computer

Hi Guys,

I would like to upgrade my graphics card (mainly to play majority of the games(nothing specific))

This is my current configuration

Intel core2 quad Q6600 @2.40Ghz
Intel DG33FBC motherboard DDR2 RAM 8GB(2GB*4) @ 800Mhz
Seagate 400GB SATA HDD
GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS 256mb graphics card

I guess those details are sufficient.. Please suggest me the best graphics card for this configuration along with some options would be nice and please explain to me on what basis a graphics card needs to be selected(like processor or motherboard or both)..Thanks in advance

Plan on buying a new power supply with any video card you decide on. The stock power supplies these days aren't going to cut it.

Wanted to add this, not sure if you want to do another build but this chart can give you a basic idea of combining parts for a build

I would go with getting a better psu first, probably a seasonic or corsair 550- 650 watt. Your cpu is older but is still decent. I would go with either a 650 ti, or a 660. Not top of the line, but you should see a good boost in gaming performance. OCing that Q6600 would help too!!
