Default replacing geforce 6150 SE 128mb with...?

Hello,
My PC has an AMD X2 dual core 2.5GHz cpu, 4GB ram, and the geforce 6150 se 128mb. I wanted to upgrade to a 512mb or 1GB video card. I was looking around newegg and found a bunch in the price range of around $100. I am not interested in overclocking at all. Also, is the geforce 6150 a pci express 16x? Thanks a lot for your help. Again, I'm interested in a 512mb or 1GB video card. Thanks.

Ok, the 6150 is an integrated chip. I'm going to assume your motherboard supports PCI-E.

I don't know what resolution you are running at but this is an all rounder card. Best bang for your buck at this price range. Hopefully this fits in your case.

I notice that card is 128bit. Is there a big dif between a 128bit card and 256bit card?

More lanes for the information to travel through. The 4850 is a good choice, but it all depends on his resolution.
