Will replacing my graphics card improve my gameplay?

I will be the first to admit that my PC is a hunk of junk, however, I do think there is some hope for it.

Currently I'm experiencing severe interface lag when in games, and I am sure it is my video card. I currently have a ATI HD Radeon 3450, and it is performing way below my expectations.

My question is, if I replace this card with a radeon 6770 (which I will have to replace the PSU for my pc as well) will this game run at a reasonable level?

I will post some of my other specs:

My processor is an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz (4 CPUs)

4 GB of ram(but I use Vista).

Is my processor acceptable? I know some have told me that processors aren't nearly as important as graphics cards when it comes to gaming.

Thanks for your help ahead of time

Hi Adam1343 and :)
A good quality GFX card will compliment a CPU and vice versa both however will equally benefit from the correct amount and type of Ram.

Provide us with a budget to work with and we can suggest some cards for you also tell us what type of case you have full tower, mid tower etc we need to make sure you have enough room for the card and the PSU.
