    your agp slot is for an agp8x card so most agp cards will work in it. you just have to worry about the height of the card as some desktop cases cannot hold a full height videocard as you won't be able to close the cover of the case.

    be better off saving up some more money & get a dual core with 4gb-8gb ram or more,it'll have hd audio,8 usb ports,hd graphic card & anywhere between 80-1tb hdd & if it's ex-lease you won't pay more than $200nz for a dell optiplex 755 2009,well that was two years ago now

    the issue you'll most probably face with what you want to do will be system resources,you'll need to be careful what programs you install or it will come to a crawl
