So if i understood correctly you have a GeForce 4 mx4000? I think your system could gain much out of a newer graphics card like an ATI 9800. The mx models are too underpowered. As an example, a GeForce 2 mx200 is a bit slower than an asus GeForce256, from my own experience. I suppose you are talking about game performance. Actually your pc is generally a bit outdated, you may want to start saving for a new one :P

Really, don't bother upgrading if you're going to buy a new one in three months. Really. If you were to upgrade any one part, you'd just be bottlenecked by the rest of the machine. Wait the three months and spend that $40 on more RAM or something for your new computer. If you've lived with that computer all this time, you can live with it for another three months.

And to let you know, yes a 6200 is a lot faster than you're current system, but it still can't run the latest games on anything but totally horrible settings. If you're looking to play older games on it, it will run well, but then you should just wait it out with your mx4000.
