(Disclaimer, I am an utter novice about graphics cards)

I have a dusty old gateway 600S computer lying around and would like to use it for Netflix. It meets the minimums for cpu and RAM. But the on board graphics controller it came with does not seem up to the task Intel 828456/GL. So I was thinking about replacing it... assuming it's possible and isn't too expensive.

Here are the motherboard specs with say it is "is keyed for 1.5V and 0.8V AGP cards only, and only supports AGP Graphics cards at 4X and 8X speeds.". So here are my questions (Disclaimer: I'm a total novice about graphics cards. So please take that into account :-)

1) Are there any current graphics cards that might be compatible? Or is it just too old?

2) If so, which ones? Also any recommendations and/or things to look out for when choosing a card?
