What game are you trying to play? has AGP Geforce 7300gt or Radeon 3850 that would help you a lot. You really need a better cpu though for most games now.

HD4670 might be overkill for a P4

I'm building a system to my sister, it should run Sims 3. What I'm worrying about is amperage, since the psu only has 15 amps / 12v rail.

Just pick depending on the money you want to spend? That's pretty bad advice as there's lots of bad overpriced cards. Considering I wouldn't trust his PSU with an HD3850 there's basically 2 options; an HD4650 or HD4670. The 7300gt that you mentioned earlier is several times worse than any of these cards.

Would HD3650 work? There's one on Ebay ending soon.

Seems like HD 4650 would be my best option. Thanks for advice!
