pretty much anything, just depends on how much money you want to spend...which mobo are you running? I'd consider upgrading that 250 watt power supply also, I have no idea how you are running an Athlon 64 3200 on that little power

I know that from playing with all my settings on low. I'm was wondering what the best video card that I could get with the specs I posted above and no upgrading anything else since I'm broke.

yea.. i doubt the 5200fx will take up much more power then the geforce4 mx, but when you do have cash upgrade the PSU (but its not urgent..)
