What is the best video card compatible with my mobo?

  1. Hi, I have been looking at this for a while now and I could never figure it out. Since I have a ****ty card (ATI Radeon 9200) that can't even get the latest updates and has a max fps of 20, I think it's time for a new one. Could someone please find the best performance : price ratio video card for my mobo. I checked google and had no helpful results. Like I said, I want the best video card I can get for this mobo, BUT within 100-200$. I am willing to go up to 225$ if necessary.
    Here is my Mobo

    P.S. Could someone tell on a scale of 1-10 how good my motherboard is?
    P.P.S. Are Video cards and Graphics cards the same?
    If you need any more info just tell me.

    Edit:
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+, MMX, 3DNow, ~1.5GHz
    O.S.: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2

    For the one that is out of stock, don't worry, I have time. And for the second one, I mainly read the bad reviews, 25 perfect reviews, 17 horrible reviews. I don't like that ratio lol. I think the first one has more of a chance.

    It does have four out of five eggs, so really not all that shabby. But if you got time I like the first one.

    there is no way to find what PSU without looking in the case and why would u not want to, you can not change the video card with out opening the case.
