an fx5900xt or 9800pro are about £130 and will suit you. Download your motherbord manual for info on bios. It may be that you have to disable onboard graphics then install the new card. Some motherboards auto disable onboard graphics when they detect the presence of a card in the agp slot.

Or the ATi RADEON 9600 series is a good choice for value!
