Look, anything faster than a Radeon 4670 will be hampered by your Athlon 5200 at it's stock speeds. Even though the 5200 chip (I'm assuming a Windsor) could probably get to around 3.0Ghz with the stock cooling, you have a little prebuilt there and I doubt it's too overclocking friendly. Anyway this is what I would do. I would go with a decent Power Supply of at least 550W such as

Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W $84.99

or

CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W $79.99

If you want to know more about how different PSUs stock up just Google "PSU tiers". As for the video card I say go with a Radeon 5770 such as

SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770 1GB $164.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

While a Radeon 5770 may be a little overkill for your system, you will be able to use it in your next build when you upgrade your motherboard, CPU, and RAM. Your PSU will also allow you to ad another 5770 latter on to run in crossfire for even more performance. Now you may notice that some 5770s only have one crossfire connector while others have two. This isn't a problem if you are only going to use two cards, but if you wanted to use three then the second card would need to have two and the third card would either need to have two or have the connector in the place that the first card does not, thus preventing it from connecting with the first card but allowing it to connect with the second.

Anyway if you're not really interested in reusing the PSU and Video card in another computer down the line then save some money and go with a good 400-500W PSU unit and a Radeon 5750 to save some money.
