Dell 3000 graphics upgrade?

  1. Done a fair bit of searching and came up with this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...&n=560798&s=electronics&qid=1188755729&sr=8-1
    Would it be a worthy upgrade for my old beast?
    Can i ever expect to be able to play the new halflife episodes or the like on the 3000 just with a pci graphics card upgrade such as this one? suggest something better?
    im sure as you can tell im a complete noob so any help would be muchly appreciated,
    cheers

    You could do better if you can find one. Since you can use PCI only your choices are limited. Either a X1550 or a 6200. The 5200 will work fine though.
