Default Wondering a few compatibility things, video card, rendering, gaming, etc

I was offered the below computer for $370. I was wondering if it would work with the video card that I have currently, the nvidia geforce 7950. Sidequestion, what would be the best video card for video/photo rendering and video game performance. I'm not very familiar with compatibility of these things but I know it's a good deal.


Newegg.com - MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Newegg.com - RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular LED Power Supply

CPU AMD|PH II X6 1075T 3.0G AM3 RT
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1075T Thuban 3.0GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT75TFBGRBOX

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

additionally, DVD Burner, extra front LED fan,
3x Western Digital 80gb Raptor Drives + 1 160 gb Raptor Drive

Thanks for your help, I'm fairly new to this and was hoping this large community would be able to usher me in.

Sapphire is apparently a good brand for video card. This is according to a senior forum member on the AMD Game forums
This here will probably be a good card
ATI Radeon
However I wouldnt consider putting it into a PC worth $370 :/
