You would need a PCI video card such as the EVGA GeForce 6200 for $49.99.

What are you planning on using it for mainly?

^^^ Indeed.

If you intend to be doing any hardcore gaming you might as well forget about it. That thing is too ancient for that, you'd need a whole new computer, any graphics intended slot besides regular PCI would be best whether it be AGP or PCI-e x16.

You could have easily went to Start ---> Run ---> typed in 'dxdiag' and got your system model, Google'd it, found the website, saw that you only have PCI slots and then found one on Newegg.

I would suggest trying to get a new computer, rather than a new graphics card.
