Graphics card for old PC for 1920 x 1080 monitor

I'm a newbie. I have a new Dell S2409W 24" monitor with an old Dell GX280 SMT with Intel 82915G/910GL integrated graphics. Despite all sorts of attempts, I can't get the monitor to run on it's native 1920 x 1080 resolution. According to Dell, the integrated graphics simply can't handle the resolution.

So, I'd like to install a PCI-e video card just to be able to run the monitor at it's native resolution. It won't be for any gaming, just some streaming video such as Youtube, Hulu. Would something like an old Geforce 6200 256mb work and be enough to just use the monitor at native res? I can't spend too much and don't want to change out the power supply.
