Upgrading graphics card

Gateway desktop / 6100 series

Specs: Windows 7 32-bit
Hi guys. Thanks in advance for responding to this question when anyone does.

I have a Gateway E series, the 6100 tower. It's a decent computer really, I enjoy it.

CPU: Intel Pentium 4 Hyper-threaded, 2.80ghz, 2.79gz
GPU: PnY nVidia GeForce FX 5200 256mb 128-bit PCI.
Motherboard: Intel i820 chipset, D865GLC.

I want to upgrade my gpu so I can run Fallout 3, assorted titles such as that. I realize I'll need to upgrade my powersource, as it's only a 250watt. I've got that under control already, what with a 450watt 20+4pin on the way. Now, my biggest question is this. I've got an AGP slot, and three PCI slots. I've got a PCIe card that's of no use to me considering my motherboard won't hold it.

My main question is: What AGP card I should get? I'm not familiar with upgrading systems all that much, as I've only done RAM, CD/DVD-ROMS and harddrives. So any help would be accepted.
