Your CPU is very, very old. I would suggest a CPU/MOBO upgrade before you do anything with the GPU.

your motherboard is AGP x4/x8 an that would really require an outdated GPU which really wouldn't be cost effective.
BUT to try to find something for you:
VisionTek 400518 Radeon HD 3650 1GB DDR2 AGP $54.99

most anything else is less than 1 Gb of memory :( 
EDIT:
a day later and a dollar short :lol:

"any affordable suggestion pls." Replace your CPU and mobo. YEAH... not what he asked. at this point people like him (and me) KNOW we have old anceint hardware. The best you can get without bottlenecking is probably a Geforce 8800GT or a 9000 series.

Most Pentium 4 motherboards can use Pentium 4s with a higher clock rate. For example you can find a Pentium 4 3.2GHz for around 10 dollars and 3.6GHz for 30 or less dollars. Then at that point you can try a lower-end GTX card. maybe a GTX250.

Last I heard, Pentium 4 was a single core, not very good for anything now really.

I'm just trying to help without having to replace the whole mobo. Maybe his socket type and chipset could support a Core2Duo or a Pentium dual-core. Plus AGP is not to bad (But yes it is very old for gaming) I mean most PCI-E cards only exceed twice that speed(am I rite?)

AGP = 2133 MB/s
PCIe 2.0 = 16 GB/s or ~16000 MB/s

Theoretical of course.

It's a LGA775 but apparently doesn't support any C2D's or C2Q's. He's out of luck there.
