Default Help with ATI Cards Needed

Hi, im new here so if this is in the wrong place, please move

I have an ATI All-In-Wonder 9200 Series computer.
Some would say that my computer is slowly becoming obselete and i would happon to agree with them. Im a gamer and im looking to get a new graphics card for my system.

So i ask: If I replace my graphics card with a new card such as the Radeon X1300 or X850, will they been compatable with my computer?

Or can I ONLY have a Radeon 9200 Series card in here?

Thanks for any replys.

No u should be able to upgrade your graphics card to any card as long as its compatible with your motherboard, can I ask wot are the specifications of your machine and can u give us some more details about motherboard and maybe your budget??
