Usually game companies offer a new an improved game which is basically an easier version but with better graphics than the previous. This is not true for Civ V, its better in almost every way.
I would suggest Civ3 Complete as the best choice. It works fine on Windows 7,
The city progression is clunky and ill conceived. Empire expansion is really hard to do and actually discouraged in some cases. The graphics in general are very sharp but the new graphic for un-discovered territory (actual clouds/fog) makes my eyes hurt.
Rather than an update/tweak of Civ that provides the same experience, just with improvements, I think that Civ 5 is a very different game from Civ 4. I'd rather take some of the combat improvements (hexes and stacks) and apply them back to Civ 4 and play that. As it is, I'll just keep playing Civ 4.
One of my major gripes is that the "beauty" of the graphics increases, but it looks to me like the total scope of the geography is less (i.e., I feel like I'm managing less territory, which makes it seem less complex, to me).
Because the game has been out for a while, there is plenty of user-crafted content out there that adds value without incremental cost.
I recommend shopping on Steam.com for "specials" on the underlying game and the add-on. If you already have Steam, wait for a holiday and check Steam daily. If you care to add Steam on your computer, it could save you some money. If you want the game and this add-on right away, Amazon is probably going to be your best bet.
The graphics are beautiful, but it's not enough to make up for the vast changes they made that just don't click for us. We'll continue playing Civ 4 instead. Hopefully, when Civ 6 comes out, it will be better!
