Yes, it is crap. This is a desktop computer, not a laptop, right?
And your definition of not breaking the bank?
under $150 , $200ish if its REALLY going to make a big difference.
A 9600GT will set you back pretty much bang on $150.

8300 GS? What's that? Well, just so you know, if it really is crap, it's taking down the quality you're getting from that quad-core. I read in a magazine that stuff like that happens, and I've found out myself.

or for an extra $30 you could get a 8800gt which is a better card

an 8300GS is hardly a crap card. Try out my 6200LE for a day and tell me his is crap. But yeah if you're willing to go out a little get an 8800GT, they're very powerful at most new games.
