I went ahead and installed a Nvidia Geforce 8500 GT into this computer. Holy crap! World of Warcraft and Oblivion look almost cinematic now! Screenshots don't really do it justice. It's more about the way the water ripples and how the leaves gently blow in the wind than how the textures look. I've often said I care more about the gameplay than the graphics in video games (and it's still true) but I'm still amazed by the advances they've made in that area.
