For $120 I would go with an Ati Radeon 4830. Can't beat it for the price.

Go with the cheapest one, if they are at the same price look for the one with the best cooler.
IMO Ati and Nvidia are roughly equal, but Ati have very nice offers in the lower price ranges.

yeah if you are only playing some older games. Thats not going to help you with fps. Like others suggested try to get a 4830 or atleast 9600GT.
