You'll need to identify what sort of ram you require..and what type of graphics it AGP or PCI-E?..and what is your max budget for the card??
These are the details of my PC.

So what are the best options for upgrading?

Depends on your budget, but your current system is AGP so the GeForce 7600GT from ebuyer (around £65 delivered) is one of your best choices. For a bit less (£53) is a 7600 GS, which is also quite capable.

However, prey is quite demanding and your CPU really isn't up to much these days, you would probably be better overall considering upgrading the whole system (or at least motherboard, ram, cpu and graphics). You could probably get a dual-core system with 2GB DDR2 ram and a similar graphics card to those above for around £175, which would give you a much more modern system.
