Need advice....

Hi, I just got a new Sony Vaio computer. It has a 2.2 Ghz P4 CPU, 512 MB RAM, and some 32MB integrated SiS 650/740 card on it. Q3 only runs about 30FPS and I really want to take advantage of all the CPU power, so I am looking for some advice on a new video card. I want something inexpesive ($150 or under), that will last for a few years, and that is quiet. This computer is virtually silent when running, and I don't want a really noisy card.
I was thinking about a Radeon 8500 but I am not sure. Any advice?
