This: Novatech GeForce GT 430 1GB GDDR3 and this: Novatech GeForce GT 240 1GB GDDR3 should do fine with most games for PCSX2. The rest are really low end

or this, if you need a flat card

This is the maximum your PC needs. Any stronger GPU will be bored by low RAM and old CPU.

If you are a nVidia boy, take this:

Though, it is weaker than the ATI/AMD suggestion.

I think the radeon 5670 is a good card in the sub $100 division. My cousin has this card and it plays starcraft 2 on ultra(cant refrence to pcsx2 since he doesnt use it). Should have no problems with playing pcsx2 on higher than native res. Still might be a good idea to wait a while since amds 6000 series are due soon.

Edit: I guess SamSoNight beat me to the punch.

Yeah the 5670 will be great, although still severely bottlenecked by that ancient CPU. With that in mind, I'd recommend something lower like 5650, except if you're planning on upgrading the whole system soon and keeping the card for a newer one.

well 6000 series will be very expinsive after it out
well i am nividia boy
about the first one mine is 1 gb and 128 bits so is that worth to upgrade but it direct x11 so i will reembre it when i upgrade
the second i dont know that kind of gpu it might not support my screen ( wich is new not old like the mother ) and my mother board
the tihird is cool and cheaper and dont have direct x 11
so the first one i chose thanks for all the help
well i know that my cpu is anchient and 6 years old i will upgrade him but then i have to upgrade the mother then i have to buy a new ram then it will cost alot of money ( wich i dont have )

The GTS 450 is only slightly more than $100 (in the US at least) and is a great value card. The problem for you will be what price you can get it for locally, as availability and price will differ drastically outside of the USA/Europe.

Upgrading to a new socket doesnt have to be so expensive if you take the amd route.

This setup would be much faster than you current and costs about $125. Ofcourse you would have to make sure it is compatible with your other components so you dont need new psu or other stuff then the prise can really get away from you.
