I have rather old PC:
CPU AMD Barton 2600+, 1GB RAM DDR 400, MB NF2, ATI 9600 XT (AGP), HDD 120 GB ... etc.

I mostly play MMORPG-s and I find it hard to play in nice FR lately :( 
I am very much divided between buying new PC or upgrading my graphic card ...
My question is how much would I get from new graphic card ?
I would appreciate your suggestions very much!
Sorry on bad english, I am not native talker ...

I think you should buy 7600gt/7600gs ( gddr3 ) . You'll see a big diference between your r9600 and 7600...

I would buy a new PC. Buying AGP cards these days is a waste, they are more expensive than PCI-E cards of the same power and they can't be reused in future computers. Also, any good graphics card would be held back by your CPU and RAM.

Edit: agreed with previous poster if you only have $100 or $200 to spend, of course.
