I suggest you upgrade to a Radeon 9600 Pro (pretty cheap now) or at least a Geforce Fx5200

I don't think i've seen any non-SE 9200's lately, and they don't give you much in terms of performance

I never for the life of me could get a single upgrade to work with my old eMachine except for memory. The video card was a nightmare, I ended up re-installing windows after I figured out that eMachines is a proprietary system and screwed up my comp. I say, get a video card from a store that will let you return opened and installed merchandise.
