Default graphics card suggestions?

I'm in the market for a new graphix card. For now im using a geforce 4 ti4600 to a 42"lcd via hdmi to dvi cable. Unfortunately i can only get it up to 720p. I new a card with 2 dvi ports that can do 1080i. I dont really use my computer for gaming, just hd sat tv and divx movies.

my agp is only 4x.
any suggestions beside a new motherboard?

7600 GT's are excellent for the money. they have dual DVI ports.

the 7600 GT is not that far off a 7800 GS in terms of performance, but it costs a whole lot less.

On the Nvidia website it shows NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB DDR3 with a bus type agp 8x. Can someone confirm that this will work on a 4x as well? If so this is my new card!

I'm so close to getting it. I see on newegg it says 4x/8x but not on the nvidia website. I can't afford to spend that money on a card just to find out it wont work on my 4x agp.
