Any of the lower end cards should be fine. 4650, 5570, etc. I don't think there are any dual core CPUs for that board. I think it also has a via chipset so you might want to avoid any of the PCIe 2.1 cards if you believe the rumors.

Again, any of those lower end cards. There are rumors on the net about 2.1 cards not working so well in 1.0 slots, more so if you have an "off brand" chipset like from Via, etc. A 220 or 240 from Nvidia should be ok. If this is for gaming avoid the higher end cards as you don't have a dual core to push it. If for general use then a GT220 will be fine.

How about getting the GT 430 or HD 4670 or even a GT 440. Those are all low end cards, that would give you acceptable performance.. for the price.

Oops, I should have known that. Via back that used AGP cards.

7600GS, 4650 will be the more common performing cards. Honestly at this point I'd just find a cheap one. You really need a whole system upgrade.
