But I want to play games from time to time, I can't have my computer sit in my dorm room and do absolutely nothing, but idle.
I recommend either getting a cheap 9800GT just to get some decent gaming in or get a GTX 260 for a more long term upgrade. Overclock it and you've got roughly the speed of a stock GTX 280.
I wouldn't bother with anything more expensive unless you have plenty of money to drop on hardware right now.
