The new motherboard has an integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 that I plan on allocating 512mb of memory. My current, 3 year old, system has a nVidia 7900 GS 256mb. Should I keep the single discrete 7900GS or use the integrated HD4200?
It is also important to note, that the next stage will either be 1: a new HDD, DVDr, and Win7 PRo, OR 2: an ATI Radeon 5750 1gb (I have not decided on which yet, but I'm leaning towards the graphics card), so which ever graphics choice I make, it will be short term.
Current OS is WinXP Pro SP3, and will be until I upgrade the HDD.
Any opinions would be appreciated and helpful.

The HD 4200 doesn't compare to the 7900 GS. Stick with your 7900.
By the way, the HD 5750 has the same performance as the HD 4850. But the 4850 is $93.
The HD 5750 is only good because it supports DX11, and eyefinity. To be honest I would take the 4850 over the 5750 any day.
