I recommend the MX4000, great low-budget video card.

If you dont have a agp slot then

GeForce 4 MX 440 is a good buy for you, or also look into a Radeon 7000. That is a very cheap budjet card, especially since you don't appear into gaming.

P.S. Speaking of gaming, it really suprises me nobody has recommended a 6800 GT lol
