Is it worth upgrading my graphics card ?

Got a 5 year old Medion running xp with an Athlon 1600xp proc..256mb. Perfectly fine for everyday use, however, the pc doesn't like games very much. Now and again it will freeze up etc. Graphics card is Geforce3 200ti 64mb. Is it worth upgrading graphics card for gaming, and will it cure the freeze problem ? I can get an ATI Radeon 9550 for under £50. Any help. Thanks.

"Is it worth upgrading graphics card for gaming"

Yes

"and will it cure the freeze problem"

No one will ever know unless you try it.

The card you suggest sounds like a sensible match for the system. Graphic cards vary in quality - a know branded version may well be better than a no-name cheapie.
