Shopping for an upgrade

I'm looking for an upgrade to my current video card. Here are my specs-- all the parts were bought quite a while ago, and I don't have the money to upgrade the entire rig. So please, only suggest upgrades that work without being ***ABSOLUTELY***  forced to upgrade further hardware, because we all know how it's designed--- this will NOT work with that, which will NOT work with this, etc etc until it's impossible to avoid an entire new computer. I only have the money to upgrade one piece, and I'm looking to upgrade the video card.
