if you arent going to upgrade your processor, you might want to overclock it with the help of a after market cooler .. Right now games arent THAT CPU heavy, so a gPU will always be priority but a year or two from now, you are gonna face poroblems if you dont upgrade that processor

Modern Warfare 1 will run on it smoothly.
Advanced Warfare will stutter on the HD 4850 on standard settings at 768p.

Newer games will be a slideshow. CPU is capable enough but GPU is a waste for new games.

That CPU is fine. Basically any 965 can go to 3.7-3.8 Ghz range with a cheap air cooler with no issues. Upgrade the GFX though it lacks firepower by a big margin. GTX960 or R9 270x/280 would be better depending on your budget.

I already have aftermarket cpu cooler - cm tx3 so I guess Overclock is not an issue. Last game I played on my rig was bioshock infinite which ran smooth on medium settings.
Please suggest good graphic card within range of 10k.

Im guessing you gonna game at your Dell 19" . But I do want to know what SMPS / PSU are you using?

As for the recommendation, try to find AMD R7 265x if its available under 10k. It should be around it. If not, then or you will have to go for R7 260x.

If it happens that you have a local PSU and dont wanna upgrade it (though I would highly recommend you to do so), then you should rather go for GTX 750TI which got only 60W rating.

TX3 is not enough to OC Phenom II 965 BE. Start at-least with CM 212 series cooler or better get WC like seidon.
