Default Card recommendations

Hey, i'm trying to make a decision here. My computer is pretty old (P3 1GHZ, 4X AGP) and I don't think my current ATI Radeon 9600 Pro 128 MB card can run on my system. I don't know why, but it runs like crap. I've tried everything to fix it, and it doesn't work. I really never liked ATI cards in the past, and this just makes me hate them more. I've looked on the steampowered forums, and it seems like TONS of people have problems with these ATI cards. When I had my old Geforce 3, it ran perfectly. It works best with my system. I don't think this board (ASUS CUSL2, 815E) can handle the newer cards. So, i'm going to ebay this ATI, and either A) Get another Geforce 3, or B) a Geforce 4. Whatever I get, it's going to be by Nvidia. I looked on pricewatch, and it lists:

$82 - GeForce4 TI 4800
$71 - GeForce4 TI 4200 128MB
$82 - GeForce4 TI 4200 64MB
$41 - GeForce4 MX 440 8x AGP 128MB
$32 - GeForce4 MX 440 8x AGP 64MB
$41 - GeForce4 MX 440 4x 128MB
$32 - GeForce4 MX 440 4x 64MB
$37 - GeForce4 MX 420
$38 - GeForce4 MX 4000 8x AGP 64MB
$90 - GeForce3 TI 200 128MB
$60 - GeForce3 TI 200 64MB
$49 - GeForce3

How is a Geforce 4 cheaper then a GF3? Which card do you guys reccomend I get, with my system the way it is? Remember, the Geforce 3 ran great for me @ a steady 85 FPS in CS.
