Looking to optimize graphics performance on my PC

Looking to optimize graphics performance on my PC

I have and Intel Core 2 Duo e6550 @ 2.33ghz, 3 GB dual channel DDR2@399 and a Nvidia 1536mb GeForce 8600 GT. I am running windows 7 32 bit home premium. I around $100 to do an component upgrade. What would be the best bang for my buck? What would the possibility of overclocking be? Any free suggestions would be great also. Looking for better performance in games and in video playback quality. Thanks.

if you can cough up another $40, i'd recommend a Radeon 5xxx series with DirectX 11 support, entry level models are available for $140, like this Radeon HD 5750 with 1GB GDDR5 memory:

thats REAL easy to say "JUST BUY A NEW ONE" But the man asked to beef up his current one. For this card EVGA percision turner will OVERCLOCK your GPU;Shaders;and memory on the card. USING this software you can EASLY give your card the SAME clock speeds as these others cards that are covited so much.. EXAMPLE i have a 8200m G IGP for my laptop. Stock speeds 400 gpu 800 shader 667 ddr2 memory. i have it clocked to 580 GPU 1.3 Ghz shader and 800 mhz ram on the INTERNAL card. JUST like a more expensive card. SO i have 40-60 fps instead of 20-30 fps. IF you don't have any money LIKE ME. then this can be a solution for you.
