You only have 512 megs of ram? I would recommend upgrading that first. You will notice a BIG improvement on system performance. IF your set on upgrading the video card as well. The major difference between different cards of the same name are the memory and the clock speed. Some cards are overclocked at the manufacture. Here is a link to Tomshardware.com where they review and reccomend the best gaming cards for the money. If your only running one processor on that motherboard your GPU will be bottle necked if you get the fastest out there like a Nvidia Geforce 8800 Ultra or GTX you could save allot of money going with an 8600. I have always used Nvidia cards but their ATI counter parts work great as well.

thanx for the answer but as you understand I will also upgrade the memory, but the problem is that the card should be using AGP and not PCI-epress. are those cards u said, sold in market under AGP protocol?and ofcourse nvidia

the AGP list starts on page 5 of 7 for that Toms Hardware list. upgrading to a 7 series card will improve your system. What do you want to do with this system? (ie play games, run Aero, etc)
