Any card that fits your motherboard should be fine.

To recommend a specific card, I'd have to know:
a) your CPU
b) your SYSTEM RAM amount (i.e. 2GB?)
c) your budget
d) your POWER SUPPLY (i.e. Corsair TX 750W)

Assuming you are on a budget, and have 32-bit XP (likely) with 2GB or 3GB of RAM then I have to recommend something like this for $100:

Minimum System Requirements
- Windows XP (SP3)/Vista/7
- Pentium 4 processor with 2 GHz (dual core processor recommended)
- 1GB Ram (2GB recommended)
- GeForce 6800 or Radeon X1600 with Shader Model 3.0 and 128 MB RAM
- DVD ROM Drive
- 4 GB hard disk space

So if Microsoft Updates are on auto you should have XP SP3 (Service Pack 3). You're likely using ONBOARD GRAPHICS which are inadequate. You MAY have to setup your graphics card like this:
1. reboot into your BIOS (DEL KEY on boot)
2. change the Graphics boot selection to PCIE (PCI Express graphics card)
3. shut down
4. Install the card and hook up the monitor
5. boot up
6. Download and install the drivers (for AMD it's , driver support... )
