Without a better power supply and CPU, 7900GT is about the max at the moment. You could get a better card but without Vista or a better CPU you wont see much improvement. You could try overclocking....
Any cards above your level would probably overheat.
They will all work and be a improvement in your system. By going a little higher (8800gt/9800gt, hd4830) you can turn on some AA with out loosing fps. http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLan...
according this cpu support list the best cpu your board supports are dual core pentium 4 and if you have one of those you have nothing to worry about going with the higher ones.
