and 1more thing, which card is good for me? nvidia or ATI?
Your processor is very slow by today's standards. Most games from the last few years will not be playable because of such. I would recommend looking for an older used card for a good price. Something like a 7600GT/7800GS/6800GT would be appropriate for your processor and allow you to play most games over 3 years old fairly well.
^+1 just as jyjjy said above...
Are you a gamer? what are you going to do with your computer? playing games? or just some office work?
