If the board has a PCIe x16 slot both will work the GT440 being the more powerful.

Upgrade your ram, to maybe 3GB

Get a 440. Better one is 6670, but since you probably can't get it, get 440.

Your motherborad has a 1 x PCI ExpressX16 expansion slot, so you can place any modern card on it, to include both Gforce 520 and 440, but mind the card dimensions against your case available space, as some card are too long/big http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As suggested you can improve your ram, as your mobo support up to 4 GB. Get a DDR2 800 kit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
