    Is this a small form factor or a regular width case? It appears that you need an AGP compatible card but the form factor of the case will make a difference in the card you can get. Also, you might need to upgrade the power supply to match the graphics card but that depends on which card you get.

    TBH no matter what card you have, you won't be getting decent performance.
    IMO it's time for a new computer.
