Well, if you have a better graphics card, it will take load off the processor when using Aero. Am i right?
Not exactly. Aero only requires a 1GHz cpu; the OP has a Q8400 quad. Aero isn't making an impact at all on it.

Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition

the low end 5 series cards from ati are looking pretty good and in your price range. - SAPPHIRE 100291L Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards is great if you wont be playing games, this card has HDCP. if you think you may do some light gaming in the future try - POWERCOLOR AX5570 1GBD3-LH Radeon HD 5570 1GB 128-bit GDDR3 Low Profile Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards both should be okay on stock power supplies but you may want to double check.
