Default What upgrades do I need on this PC

I have this parts:

Intel Pentium 4 630 3.0Ghz with HT LGA775
ECS 865G-M8 i865
512MB DDR333
Inno3D Geforce FX5200

It runs fine but a little lag on most new games.Im planning to upgrade some parts I dont want to spend too much that will be 50% of the total price of my PC.

So what should I upgrade? Im thinking of this for the video card.

XFX Geforce 7300GT

or maybe a little increase in budget and for this graphics card:

eVGA Geforce 7600GS

and 1Gig of RAM.

Will it increase the performance of my PC?

another 512MB RAM and the 7600GS would make a nice gaming experience.
