Default New to graphic cards, have a question about upgrading to 260.

Ok, im looking to play the newest games with the highest setting but i have a few questions.

Here are my specs

Os:Windows Vista™ Ultimate
Processor:AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz
Memory:1022MB RAM
Motherboard: Gigabyte ga-k8u-939
And the current graphics card i use which is Horrible cause i never upgraded this computer is a
RADEON X800 PRO
Power supply max: 450Watts (so i need to upgrade my power supply)

Now the questions, If i upgrade my graphics card to a evga geforce 260 could i play crysis in max or other games. Or do i need to upgrade my processor and ram?

What does changing the processor to a better one do for the games? Cause i really don't want a new processor.
And is it necessary to put more fans to avoid overheating?

Thanks so much for the help ! And great forum!
