Default Pc Gaming help

Well I have this computer that I just bought because it had been on sale so I thought it would be a good buy so I picked it up. Now I was planning to use it for some sort of gaming but it tends to struggle graphically it looks but I could be wrong..Could I possibly get some recomendations on what needs to be upgraded on this pc in order to run games of this year smoothly.

Specs:

Intel core 2 quad q8200 @ 2.33 ghz
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bits
280 Watt PSU
8 gb or ddr2
9300ge GPU
SuperMulti DVD Burner (1)
1 tb of HDD

And anything else I may of missed is here http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...576&CatId=4927

Now I know a couple things need changing such as the GPU and the 280 watts but what would be recomended in terms of its replacement. Also I tend to go towards geforce cause I'm not entirely sure what radeons are better then the other. So any sort of help will be helpful.

EDITED*

Also I have a I-Inc iH-282HPB 28" Class Widescreen LCD Monitor
