What is the brand and model number of your power supply unit? There should be a label affixed to the side of power supply listing its specifications.

What is the make and model of your system's motherboard?

Since you specify that you have a Delta DPS-295BB A REV:00 power supply do you have a Sony VAIO? If so, what is its model number?

The Delta DPS-295BB A REV:00 has a Max. Total Output of 295.4 Watts.

Wow, an FX5600. Old school. Anyway, you could just get a cheap HD 3450 AGP or something. Of course it depends on what CPU you have and what you want to play as to if upgrading your GPU makes any sense.

You can of course get a 4650 but I would say you need to upgrade your PSU for that. I mean sure a 4650 doesn't use much power, but that PSU is pretty old so it's not as effective as it's markings my suggest.

The DDR2 memory that is on the graphics card is only accessible by the graphics card and is completely independent of any memory that is installed on your motherboard.

That card won't work.

You don't have a PCI Express x16 slot on your motherboard.

You also don't want to be using a PCI slot graphics card either because it's slower than its AGP slot equivalent.

It has the same power supply requirements as your current graphics card so it should work just fine.

Could i also get a pci card or only AGP

PCI cards are slower than AGP cards because of the much lower bandwidth on the PCI bus.

A passively cooled graphics card would be quieter, not that you would necessarily notice that.
