Hi,

Well I can't really help you on choosing the card, you'd probably have to specify the specs of your computer for someone to help you, but the general advice given to people in your case is to wait a couple of months because there's a new generation of cards, dx10 cards, comming out that will be a lot more powerful than the dx9 cards today..
Then again if you really can't wait, specify your specs so someone can help you..

So in space saver mode your specs are:
AMD Athlon 2.2 GHz
1 Gig of RAM
250 GB Hard Drive
ATI Xpress 200
Integrated Audio

And yes, from almost everyone here, you will get "Wait for DX10 to come out." Now is just not a good time to upgrade. Too much in the future to outdate ya now!
