    Well that graphics card isn't that good...what are you plan on playing?

    I would recommend you something like the HD 4850/4830 or the GTX 250

    well depending if its the G92 8800GTS 512MB it should be exactly even with the 4850
    if its not then then the 4850 will smoke it

    The only issue I have with the 4850 that the OP posted as a choice is that heatsink. It doesn't look like it'd offer a good cooling solution. If the OP is not a huge PC gamer or enthusiast than it could overheat quickly.

    I think there's a Gigabyte variant that has a much better heatsink attached.

    I think the heatsink is the equivalent of the Zalman VF1000, which a very very nice heatsink.

    I have a SAPPHIRE 4830 512MB and it's about 45 C when I play Portal on total max.

    I'd go with this video card.
