It wouldn't really be worth it, you're better off building or buying a new pc.

But if you absolutely have to have one, get something like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814145136

I wouldn't spend any more than that.

Just consider what you do online with that amount of speed. See about a CPU upgrade, if possible.

Can you be more specific, what kind of fps were you getting?

The cpu plays a big part in graphic performance, since the cpu is feeding the gpu, faster is better, until the cpu becomes fast enough that you hit the limit of the gpu.

Edit-My friend is running XP on a Pentium 3 500 Mhz machine with 512 mb ram. Whenever I go to his house, I bring my laptop, because 500 Mhz on XP sucks bad.
