You need to be sure that a pci-e video card will not be too long and will physically fit in your computer case.
Your power supply needs to be powerful enough to supply additional power to the video card.
Some inexpensive power supplies don't put out their "rated" power and might not be stable if you buy a card that requires too much power.
Are you into gaming? Watching videos? How much can you spend if you want to buy a new card?
I'm currently using my 7600 GT video card in my P35 system and it has no problem playing videos on my 24" 1920 x 1080 monitor.
Playing modern games with this video card would mean that I would have to use lower screen resolution and fairly low quality game settings.
I think that your video card is several steps better than my video card.
