you could get a 7800GTS or a 7600GT which is what i had in my old computer, with about the same computer as you and it runs css at a constant 100 fps.

8600GT will run Source fine, but don't count on it for newer games like Crysis and stuff. If you want to run newer games, at least get the 8600GTS.
