That computer has 3 PCI slots. (I got the specs here: http://www4.dealtime.com/xPF-HP-Compaq-A305W-Intel-Celeron-2-7GHz-256MB-DDR-40GB-HDD-CD-RW-10-100Mbps-LAN-Support-Wind ).
The 6200 is compatible, just make sure it's the PCI version and not PCI-E.

The motherboard will support any PCI Express x16 or PCI Express 2.0 x16 video cards. Your main concern should be with the power supply since it is either a 300w or 250w.
Here is a pretty good choice for your price range:
Input your info here to see if you need a power supply upgrade.
A little money for system memory would be good if you have less than 1 Gig.
You can test it here:
If you are saving money by not buying a motherboard and want to spend it (which is what I would do), I would put the money into a the video card and power supply.
I do not know the dimensions of the Aspire Case, so one thing to keep in mind is the dimensions of the card and the power supply. Make sure they will fit before buying.
If you start replacing motherboards and such, you might as well just go with a whole new system. A new motherboard, new CPU, new memory, new graphics, new power supply, fast hard drives, new case.
