PCI Slot Video Card?

I'm having trouble on deciding which video card to get for my PC (I have a HP Pavilion a612x; 512 MB RAM). The original graphics card that came with this computer was an Intel Extreme Graphics chipset that's integrated on the mainboard and sports 64 MB of shared video memory. My computer has two PCI slots which can be used for an added video card, and I am ready to upgrade. I am a devoted Sims fan and I hate the way that my game looks. Not to mention that it lags... a lot. Can you help me choose a video card? Here's a list.

NVIDIA® GeForce FX™ 5500
Visiontek Radeon X1300
EVGA GeForce MX 4000
EVGA GeForce MX 4000
EVGA GeForce FX 5200
Diamond Stealth S80 Radeon 9200se
XFX GeForce FX 5200
Diamond Stealth Radeon 9250

I'm thinking about getting the Radeon X1300. I'm on a budget here!
