I suspect you will have an AGP slot on your motherboard which will give you a wide choice of graphics cards. If you could use something like SIW Free version to tell us the motherboard make model or failing that quite often the model number etc will be on the motherboard somewhere. Or take a photo of the board, but as I said I feel sure that you have an AGP slot.
