  1. Your computer is quite old as you noted and nothing is going to make it sufficient for current games. If you would like something that will help you play games that are a few years old then you have an AGP slot. Look for a used AGP 6800 GT or 7600 GT/GS perhaps.
  2. Your motherboard support only AGP graphic card . The best graphic card for AGP is HD 4670( there is PCI-E and AGP version) or Nvidia 7800 GS.

    Don't buy AGP graphic for this system. It is too old already. AGP graphic card performance is not good as PCI-e card. I would build a new system.

    Remember , company no longer produce AGP graphic card, so the price might remain not cheap.

    Just go to Tigerdirect.com or Newegg.com or Ncix.com and search for AGP graphic card.
  3. An HD4670 would be totally wasted on a socket A processor. Used and cheap is what he should be looking for.
  4. AGP 4x/8x........... gotta be 4x but when you look it'll say 4x/8x when you go to find one.
