Question Best low power AGP card to get to 1920 x 1080 ?

I have an old P4 Dell Dimension that only has an AGP 8x slot and a 250W power supply in it. I have it hooked up via VGA to a 22" LCD TV, but can only get up to like 1368 x 768 resolution on the integrated graphics and it looks pretty blurry. I would like a low power (so I don't have to upgrade the power supply) and low cost AGP card to put in that PC so I can set the PC's resolution output to 1920 x 1080 so that the PC is clear on the TV screen. TV has a VGA input, or an open HDMI input that I can use. No gaming requirements...just general web surfing, some flash games, youtube video watching, etc.. Which card would you suggest? Thanks for any help.

Antec 300 Case, Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 @ 3GHz, Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L, PNY 4GB PC6400 800MHz DDR2 RAM, XFX Radeon HD 5550 1GB DDR3 Ram, 1TB Western Digital Black 7200 32MB cache, 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, Antec Earthwatts 500 Watts

If you can find one, the Radeon X800 or GeForce 6200 or 6600 would do fine.
