Emachine 590 What Graphics Card ?

  Acer-1 19:58 24 Jan 2009

I brought a hp dc7100 cmt off of ebay to play a few older games on but am now realising due to the bios it does'nt accept any half decent graphics card.

So due to not having alot of money my fiance has offered to swap pc's she has got a Emachine 590 its got a 2.4ghz pentium 4 and since new its had quite a few upgrades it has a bigger psu than the original one i think its now around 350w rather than 250w and the motherboard is now a AsRock P4i65G which has a AGP 8X slot.

So what i want to know is any recomendations for graphics cards i don't want anything really expensive or obviously not something that requires loads of power just something good enough to run the elder scrolls Oblivion maybe? and counter strike etc.

I was thinking something like a Radeon 9550 but maybe a bit better?

The highest you could go with an AGP slot is a 7900 graphics card.
Upgraded mine sometime ago but now gone to mobo with PCI E so more versatile and upgradable with the present batch of graphics cards.
