None of the options you mention will be at all challenged by general
Personally I'm running a GeForce 9800GT and find it more than adequate
for my gaming needs. In my experience, upgrading wine versions has
given more performance payoff than upgrading video cards.
Basically, for the use you describe, don't worry about performance;
save your money.
