A HD 2600 Pro is a lot better than a Geforce 7300gt

OK guys, new plan. He wants to just upgrade the video car for right now. We have the GeForce FX5500 (like in sig, but no O/C'd), 128MB 64 bit interface, IIRC. Would going to a 6200, 256MB, 128bit interface help much?

Old Specs:
Intel Celeron D 2.8Ghz
80G Seagate Baracuda 7200.7
GeForce FX5500 (PCI) OCed to 300/500
am I missing anything?


Now: Toshiba Sattelite L35-S2161 running Ubuntu :)
