A PCI Graphics card like this

shpuld be ok. You don't state which o.s you are using but watch for compatibility.
An additionalol 1gb of memory would help.

The chipset on your pc (845GV) supports resolutions up to 2048x1536 @ 60Hz (click here), so you should be ok if your monitor supports your requirements.

Adding more RAM to a maximum of of 2GB (max supported on your motherboard) will help a lot.
