Default Video Card ?

Right now I have a Nvidia Geforce 2 MX 400 64 MB and I was wondering if I could run a Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 128 or 256 MB with a 350 watt power supply or do I need to get a bigger one?

yeah you can but i wouldn't suggest that card unless you are a "light" gamer.
if your worried about cash try the 5700 series, the ultra if possible.

I'm poor, I don't have any money at all right now besides 3 dollars and I'm hoping I can get some money to buy a new video card on christmas since I've been playing Call of Duty since it came out and the frame lag is pissing me off. I get a constant 20 25 fps outside and thats where I usually am on all low settings, vertical sync is off and so is everything else.

5200 will not do much better, save your cash and get a 5700.
