Need some graphics card advice

So the Graphics card that came with my computer came with when we bought it is an Nvidea GeForce 6150

Don't get me wrong, but this isnt a bad card. It can run Source Fairly Smooth, but most new games, like CnC 3, Black & White 2, and other games need to have very low graphics turned on them.

My slot is a PCI Express and I have my eye on a Nvidea GeForce 8600 GT OC on Newegg:


the problem is, that I have been getting mixed advice from my friends and family about if I should get it or not. (Whether or not my computer can handle it)

So I thought I would ask here and see what you guys think.

Here are my Comp Specs:

Manufacturer: Compaq Desktop PC
Processor: AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor 3500+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.2GHz
Memory: 446MB RAM
Hard Drive: 200gb
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE

Any advice guys?

EDIT: Sorry i posted this in the wrong forum. I moved it.
