Default New gfx card

Hello, I am considering buying a new gfx card. I want it to play games like the upcoming MMOFPS "Huxley," guild wars, cs etc.

I want this because when I play CSS, I disconnect a while. My current gfx card is an onboard ati and not that great. I think that the weak gfx card may be the reason why I disconnect from the server, or it may have to do with my wireless connection. Do you think this gfx card will help??

I am looking for a card between 100-200 dollars. It has to run on a 400w PSU.

thanks for the help!

This one will work nicely:

eVGA 256-P2-N391-AX Geforce 6800GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130265

I have no clue if that's a PCI express supported motherboard though.

Are you SURE it's PCI-Express?
