Absolutely not... a 5500OC will barely feel like a GF3 in most games... A more realistic upgrade would be to find a used 5700U for $115-125 or a used 5900XT for ~$140... those would be kick in the pants improvements :p... the 5900 a lot more so than the 5700U...

GeForce FX 5900XT, Radeon 9800 Pro. If you save up another $100 or so you can pick up a GeForce 6800 non-ultra, which in a lot of cases beats out a Radeon 9800XT in situations where 256 mb of video RAM doesn't matter.
