Graphic Card upgrade

Can anyone advise me please?
I have a 'Tiny' computer I bought two years ago.
It runs Windows ME with a AMD 1GB Athlon processor.

It came fitted with a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro graphics card.

I would like to upgrade my graphics card, but I don't know what my system will support in terms of updating.

What standard of graphics will my system accept?
The motherboard is a MSI MS-6191 American Megatrends Inc. A6191O1 V1.06 30012001 01/30/01

I have no idea what installation details are important in deciding what card I can fit to my machine, so I would welcome any advice that would help me upgrade.

Regards, ( And Happy New Year )

The key thing to check is whether your motherboard has AGP (and what version, AGP1, 2 or 4) or whether it is PCI. If it is AGP 4 then you have quite a range of options. Let us know which graphics connection you have and I'm sure you will get a range of ideas.
