TBH I'd just look into a new card. That's a really old gpu lol, just upgrade, not much point in buying a cooler that's probably worth as much as the card.

Entirely depends on how much you're planning on spending.

tbh, I don't trust ebay for things like this. you also have to be more specific, work for what?

Years and years ago I had a X800XT, I had one of these on it, it worked great.

I would spend a little more money, and upgrade to a 5xxx series card. While it's a little more than you wanted to spend, it seems like you don't upgrade all that much (at least that computer), and this would kind of keep you covered for a little while.

Yeah, that's video memory, it'll work fine. You can look on Hardforum at their classifieds, I see a lot of nice cards going cheap there.
