I doubt that you will find a videocard that can play ALL the latest games, each game is written to work best on whatever board happens to be the favourite of the program writer. So you will find that some games will run really fast and smooth, while others will limp along because they were written for a different board. All you can hope for is that the board you have picked is the favourite of the majority of game writers.

A GForce FX5200 will play ALL of the latest games and some, as long as you have a CPU etc to go with it.

If I were you I'd be more concerned about my CPU, motherboard, memory etc- if these components are old you won't get anything like the full performance from your near state-of-the-art graphics card.

Your PC is up to it.

Your new graphics card will be fine in that system.

Your PC will play all of the latest games, but whether you'll be able to play them with all of the bells and whistles turned on will depend on the game itself.
