im running windows XP home currently have nvidia geforce 2 mx w/tv out (64 mb) pentium 4 1.8 GHz ram: 256 mb ddr. (i plan to add 512 mb to that very soon). i want to know if upgrading my graphics card to increase performance will make a noticeable difference and if so, please offer suggestions. im looking to spend no more than $150 for a graphics board. also, is there any way you can run two board in tandem? suggestions for good boards and other suggestions are appreciated. feedback on ram would be great too. if you would like to know any other sys info, please reply

Upgrading ur gfx card will only make noticeable performance increase in games. Aso ur going to need more than $150 if u want to get a better card than u have now and as far as i know u cant run two gfx cards at the same time.

I assume you want to play 3D games... but yes - the GF2mx is a very old and very low-end video card nowadays.

Best Price<>performance are these.

$80 - MSI GeFore4 Ti4200 64mb
$170 - ATI 9600Pro-128mb

fx5200s are very slow...
