Uhm, both of them are workstation cards. They're both Quadros.

Neither of them are good for gaming. Plus, the 550 is a PCI-express card, and the 1100 is AGP card, so only one kind will fit. And, since it is a Pentium 4, I'm going to assume it's an AGP system, so your only choice is for the 1100.

What does the PC already have in it? Also, is it a custom build, or was it store bought? It may not have a strong enough power supply to be able to handle either of the cards.

Just get a secondhand Nvidia 4xxx or 5xxx series for 10 bucks or something like that.
