Default Video Card Question

I am looking at getting a new video card for my PC. Since my mobo is a little older it only has AGP slots. I was wondering if the following card would be worth paying 150 for the upgrade to what I already have (see signature.)

I assume since it has 512 as opposed to 128 it should be a huge upgrade and should be able to run a lot of the games I play at high settings. But wanted to check with you guys before I plunked down the money. Thanks.

Why that card over a 512 card?

Yea, if you can afford it, the 7600GT will be a better choice. It's a faster clocked card and performs much better then the 7600GS. I used to have a 7600GT and the thing played most everything I threw at it without a hitch.
