Default Old Graphics Card Questions?

Ok So I just found this old STB Sytems INC. Graphics card. I took it out of an old Gateway computer we had lieing around from about 8 years ago maybe. Is there anywya I could use this in my new computer. If so what kinda of drivers would I use. I just need something for websurfing until I can get a hold of a 8600 Ultra, whenever they come out. If its an help the model number is 1x0-0620-305

EDIT: Im also new to building computers so could you also explain how to load the drivers. Ill install the new card in the computer thne what?
