Get at least GT240 or HD4670/HD5670, that's around $70-$90...

TD is showing a ddr3 9500gt for 49.99, thats quite a bit higher than what you have now on the gpu hierarchy chart and your first option.

Now a days, a $50 graphics card isn't worth buying because you'll replace it a month later and could have saved $50 for a night out ;].
Either save up and get a $100-200 card, or make do with what you already have.
(ebay can be your friend).

The HD4670 is a good little card for the money, and who knows.. but the time you've saved another $30 maybe a better card will be at that price on ebay or something?
