TBH, sitting on a 939 platform is going to hold you back regardless of whether you have a X1900 or a GTX 580. Your platform needs upgraded before you take advantage of better GPUs. I would know, I have a 939 platform.

You could pick up something like a 5670 or 5750 on the cheap and then migrate it to a faster setup once you have the funds and still be okay as far as your gaming capacity.

or you could save some money by getting a 8800/9800 which are essentially the exact same cards.
