Default Video Card Advice

Hey I am good at computers and such, but when it comes to video cards, I start to get dumb. I don't know much about computers, so I was seeing if you people could assist me. I want to play games such as Doom 3, Quake 4, F.E.A.R. So in other words, top of the line games, with high graphics. Question is is this card good enough to play games like this...

If it's not, or you could find a card that's better for the price range of under $200.00 that would be awesome if someone could help me. I am looking to buy this card tonight, but if someone can give me more better ones, even if it cost more that would be nice. Thanks in advance.

Well right now I have a pretty fast computer, except my video card is lousy. Currently my computer has...

Pentium 4 3.0ghz with HTT.
1.25 gb of PC2100 RAM
200GB Hard Drive 7200RPM
and my current card is
GeForce MX 4000

and here's a link to the motherboard I use...

That card doesn't play anything. It's really bad.
So you think that kind of system will be able to handle my games, with that video card I have showed?

I know PC2100 isn't the best, but I am not going to just get rid of it and upgrade to PC3200, I'm sure PC2100 will be fine for the games I am trying to play, and I have a lot of it anyway 1,256mb of PC2100 should be okay.

1.25GB RAM is a strange amount to have lol, whatever floats your boat mate. The 6800 is nice, and will go perfectly with your system, it wont bottleneck anything.

Are you selling your 4000?

I will sell it if you're interested, it sucks lol. But if you want it offer a price and I'll give you it. And I have 1.25 because I have 1 gig of ram and I found another 256 ram stick in another computer, so I put that in this computer, I know it's a weird amount but it's better then nothing lol.
