    i could not find anywhere on that site that gives the specs on the motherboard. Without that it is really hard to tell what you need.
    Like what type of slots you have open (PCI, AGP or PCI-E)
    that would determine the graphics card you need.
    Also what kind of memory you need.
    And it also depends on a few other factors like what the wattage on your current power supply are and what the requirements are for the graphics card. And your processor speed makes a big difference.

    If you have a PCI-E slot and enough watts i would get this one:

    I have the 7600GT myself and it works great. But also it is running with a core2Duo processor and 2GB of RAM
