hmmmmmmm I think ATI 1650Xpro is not bad ....... I played Call of Duty 4 on Very High setting with resolution 1280*1024
I also played Jericho and MoHA .......... and Crysis on low settings
or nVidia 7950 ..... I'm not sure if its AGP or PCI-E

Go to www.ncix.com and browse what is available.
You can improve on what you currently have but it won't play many demanding games very well. Also the drivers for non-PCIe cards are probably older.
You haven're really specified your reason for upgrading so it's hard to recommend.
You should be able to find a card with hardware video decoding which is good to help the CPU if that older CPU gets maxed out with 720p or 1080p video.

hd 5450 is a better choice because it has dx 11 and will run windows 7 really smooth then a dx10 card.
