Hi,
First off id like to give u a summary of what i'm trying to do (in case the title doesn't clarify). Pretty much what i'm trying to do is, replace my old GeForce 6150 le chipset with a good cheap 3d gaming graphics card. I know it's not hard to figure this out ive already done a tone of research but i want to make sure as i am very poor and can't afford to waste money on something that won't fit in my motherboard or whatever. Anyways below are my specs of needed information of my OS. please take into count that i want it to fit and i don't want to have to buy a whole new computer (in different parts) just to fit a simple graphics card. I have had this same GeForce chip for up to 7 years now and i think it's time to replace it as i can't play any games such as (neverwinter, cube world, minecraft) even on the lowest settings rendering objects, effects everything seems to run slow but i have dual core so the only explanation is my gfx card.

That's quite an old setup there. Your CPU is okayish for low-expectations (I play one of my EverQuest boxes on a BE-2400 without too many problems, but I wouldn't try any game made after ~2010 on that machine apart from FTL)

Your motherboard supports PCIE graphics (not a given at that age), so any very low-power card should work, but don't spend much - your power supply won't be up to a larger card and the rest of the system wouldn't keep up anyway.
