Need to upgrade video card. Need info.

I want to upgrade my video card to a better card. The most I want to spend is $150. I want to be able to play games like Call of Duty, Ghost Recon, Medal of Honor, maybe Doom 3 if I even can with a $150 card. Only AGP cards, I don't have PCI Express. Here are my specs

AMD XP 1700 o/c'd to 1.8
512 MB Crucial PC2100
80 gig WDHD 8mb cache
Radeon 9100

I would like to maybe upgrade my memory to PC3200. I want to get an Barton with the 400mh FSB someday. Would 512 be plenty? Thanks for any info.

Mopower, you should keep an eye out for a deal on a 9800 pro ($200, but deals on them dip to $150 at times), or spend a little more money on the new GF 6600GT AGP version (coming in the next two weeks, going price is $220 ish).

Pretty much what he said,

How ever you might want to look at the 9600XT they are in and below your price range.
