any PCI-E 2.0 or 1.0 card will work

an ATI 5570 or 4670 will probably be a good fit. I would also check ebay and see if they have any Pentium D chips at a decent price. The Dell OptiPlex GX520 can take up to the D-840.

Getting another 1GB will also help.

*I forget that PC's case but if its a slim line then you need a low profile card.

I'd say the 5670 or the 4670 from ATI. Those are good matches for your older, but decent motherboard.

For your Pent. 4, i think HD4650/HD4670 is more than enough...
