Those specs aren't sufficient, we need the model of your CPU and the rest of your specs. Your monitor's native resolution is important too.

IMPO,
id think that your cpu would be a bottleneck, and that your dysplay is to small rez to worry about spending 200 bucks on a video card.

You need a new Motherboard/CPU/PSU first

Also that monitor is good for only not even a 100 dollar card

Because if you get a new card, the rest of your system will bottleneck it. P4 systems are a waste to upgrade. If you are going to upgrade, you might as well just build a whole new system.

I mean, why would you spend lots of money on a graphics card if the rest of your system is going to still hold you back from playing games on decent settings??
