go for cheapest. You'r P4 will bottleneck any of those i think. Spending 60USD is not a good idea

damn, i checked...your mobo does not suport core2duo/quad...only Pentium4 up to 3,6GHZ, Pentium 4 with HT and Pentium D......so....i dont know, the 8800Gt its a great car, even the 8800GTX can be found for 45- 50$ ...so i siggest that ^^alltough i dont know what do you do with the machine :) . If you want DX11 then you can buy the Radeon 5570 1GB ... but your CPU will hold back any of theese cards

Why not buy a used card such as a old 6800GT or 7800GT? I used to have a 256MB 6600GT with my old P4 2.0GHz... worked perfect

if you want to use it in new PC any of you'r card isn't any good frankly.

Do u planning to buy new PC? if not, or in well say more than 6months peroid there is no sense putting good card into your rig - waste of money.

Go for some used 7600GT, X1950 etc

Any modern GFX will be massively bottlenecked with P4. Even Conore C2d 1.8Ghz is a lot faster than your P4, and games often want dual core -3.0Ghz or even 4 or more cores.
