    Yikes a 9200! thats pretty super old, that means ur motherboard still uses agp or maybe even pci slots for grpahics.

    Onboard graphics will be even worse in your case and will use system ram that vista would want.

    Just from reading that I'd say dont go for vista cos ur machine will turn into a snail on a cold day, but if u insist buy a new graphics card and get at least 2Gb Ram. I dont know about radeons, never liked them, but a geforce 6000 series should be the minimum for runnin vista
