I have an old alienware area 51 7500 PC that I will probably use until it dies so I am trying to do some simple upgrades on this machine. It currently has a GeForce 8600 GTS 256 MB of memory. Could you please suggest what is the best video card to put on this machine? I'm trying to look for maybe a 1 GB video card with the price that hovers around $70-$80 (was fired, low paying job now lol). Not a hardcore gamer but I do play StarCraft II and use Photoshop a lot. Any suggestions or advice is appreciated.

Dependent on your psu (this card requires 450W minimum) and if you can stretch to $90 before getting your rebate;
