I have been searching a good option for a video
card up-grade
on my PC.

It's a GA-8SRX P4 Titan DDR Motherboard
CPU-2.8GHz
RAM 1.5Gb
and the slot is AGP 1x/2x/4x

the current video card is a FX5200EP

searching on internet I found that the possibly
best option
would be an ATI radeon 9600 PRO

and I found one 2nd hand
ATi Radeon 9600 PRO Rev 1.1

There are plenty of better cards than the outdated Radeon 9600Pro. What's the purpose of the upgrade - gaming? How much are you will to spend?

Have a look at the "Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart" on this page:

You'd be better off getting a Radeon X1650Pro:

Or if you're willing to spend a little more, have a look at the Radeon HD3650:
