Honestly none of them, with the amount your spending right their for minimal upgrades to an antique PC, your better off basicly building a new one.

Ouch! $134 for an FX 5200?!?!? You could get a 6600 GT for a little over $200 which dwarfs that card. Build yourself a new PC, its not worth upgrading that old one.

i hope that was a typo. Hell, u could get an fx-55, 4 gigs of RAM, dual ultra 512mb, and a nice LCD monitor for a lot less than that lol

If i were u, i would wait and save instead of going for an incremental step.

I got my new computer (which is AWSOME) for $724 USD, including shipping in that. It's pretty nice, and it'll run everything.
