Default need some advice plz

alrite I was planning on getting a 2900XT but I was thinking about it and I don't think it would really work so well with my old AMD 3500+... would it? So I am planning on upgrading to a much faster dual core and that kinda brings down my graphix card fund lol, SO I was wondering are there any cards out there that are better then my 1900GT for around $100? I could probably go a little higher but NOT MUCH at all. Also I have this PSU - LOGISYS Computer PS550AC ATX12V 550Watts Power Supply 100 - 127V/200 - 240V CE, FCC, CB - Retail
I know I know its not good but I didn't know better when I got it, just got it for the looks. So if there are any better cards around $100 would I need to get a better PSU? or should I just keep my 1900GT and get a better PSU? Again if I should get a better PSU what should I get that would be good for future upgrades? I am terrible with PSU they just confuse me lol, so any help on any of these questions would be appriciated a lot thanx
