Sigh.
Is it socket 754, A, or 939?
Is the graphics card slot PCI-Express or AGP?

Yeah, unfortunately I'm stuck with pci also. The cards I'm looking at to to upgrade mine are:

6200, but it seems kind of cheap

or this one

I'm not an expert with graphics cards, but these are some of the better ones I have been looking at. That second one is better to.

3000+ is probably the best processor you can get for socket A.
a 9600 is better than those 2 graphics cards.
And 1gb of RAM is sufficient. So there is really no point in upgrading any of this. Unless you get a new motherboard/processor/RAM/power supply all in one. Which you can't get for 150$. So just keep this system until you save up enough money for an entirely new system.
