Which computer should I buy a video card for?
 
I have $50 and I want to buy a video card for one of my computers. Which choice would be better? I am not a very serious gamer, I would like play games like cod and madden 06 on medium settings. Could one of these cards to atleast get me to play these games?, becuase I dont want to spend much more than $50 and I really dont want to buy a entire new computer.


The First:
CPU - Celeron 2.7 GHz
Memory - 768 PC-2100
this computer only has a PCI Slot so I chose one of these video card:

The Second:
CPU - Pentium 3 866Mhz
Memory - 384
This computer has an agp slot so i chose one of these 3
