I don't think the video card is powerful enough for the new games.

My reference is: go more to a better videocard !!! . For a low budget PC is my option a AMD Cpu with a good Videocard :)

just my view :P

hard to say, without knowing how much you're willing to spend on a video card

Then buy a $150 video card. One that is 2GB.

I'd get a 560GTX. Core speed is generally more important than the memory.

nVidia 560gtx is a good choise, but as much Im for supporting AMD I´d go with i3-2100(LGA 1155) CPU. Later you could switch it (if its still available by then) for some i5 (LGA1155) or Sandy Bridge i7 or even for upcoming Ivy Bridge CPU. Even some I7 would do for a long time as it beats any of current AMDs.
Also HD7800 series are out, worth to check out.
Does anyone have 560, it seems it pushes air out not to the sides like AMDs do? So on choosing the case I´d start from graphics airflow. If graphics pushes air out only from back ordinary case taking air in from front and pushing out from back would suffice. But if graphics card is pushing air out from both sides then with mentioned case type it would blow hot air inside the case on HDs and back to graphics intake vent. So a case which takes air in from bottom and blows out from both side and up would be better or there are more case variations. Which I sadly noticed later.
Also notice the length of graphics cards. Check if hard drive even fits in case after you´ve installed graphics.

Video card is rather small, you need a better one to play the games: 2010-2011-2012 ;)
