Default Pentium 3 want new Vcard

Well my friend need a new Vcard he has a 16mb old *** one lol
Well we tried one of my older ones in his machine and it didn't fit wasa 64mb, didn't support FFXI. I thought all older models no matter what had a AGP socket, which he found on Dell said his does but this one didn't fit. He has a Pentium III 1.0 GHZ card Motherboard I am not sure about but that should give you an idea. Also he has the interesting type of computer where it is horizontal instead of verticle. It does have a socket for a Vcard unlike some but we just need the right type. Any idea what might fit?

it probably has an AGP slot, but if you go with PCI, you'll be a lot safer. Perhaps an MX4000, or an FX5200? Even an FX5500 might be a good match.

Well the Vcard was about 1CM to big so we couldn't jam it. But I will look at a PCI slot. I will try and get his model number by the end of the night.
