    Here you go,
    Nvidia 6600 agp.

    It should blow away a 9200.

    Here's a benchmark of many cards including the 6600.

    The 9200 isn't on the list, but it's slower than even the worst cards on the list.

    A 9600xt would also be a possibility, although it's an older card.

    You need at least the ATI 9550 or above to get on DirectX9.0 support and hardware T&L.
    Those two things should be base specs for a new card. Or any FX card on the Nvidia side.
