What kind of graphics card should I get?

What kind of graphics card should I get for my system?

My computer is a HP Compaq d220 Microtower Desktop PC.
I currently have an integrated graphics card, but it is going bad. (The screen is yellow, and whenever I move the monitor cable, the monitor goes blank.) I only have AGP slots. (At least, that is what I think they are.)

Here is some additional info on the computer if you need it.

Windows XP Professional, version 2002 SP3.
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz
2.80 GHZ. 1.99 GB of RAM

If you need anything else, please ask.
I would like this issue to get fixed ASAP.

According to the specs, you have 3 pic slots only. Even though it's a micro tower, the pci slots say it's a standard height bay. Look at these cards for some ideas. I wouldn't spend much money on that machine,

Have you considered that the monitor may be the problem?

The monitor is BRAND NEW. I tested it on my other computers, it worked well.

I also need to ask, will a 64 bit graphics card work with a 32 bit system?
I dont know a whole lot about graphics cards and PC's... I wish I knew more though...
That is why I am making sure...

The two are not related. 32 bit is the operating system and 64 bit is the memory on the graphics card, If you can find one 128 bit would be better. Good Luck.

"The monitor is BRAND NEW"

Sorry, I must have missed that in the original post. I'll go back & re-read it, then get back to you.

Hmm, just re-read it & still didn't see anything about a new monitor being used. Did you try an old monitor to confirm that the onboard video is the problem?

Here's a fairly decent PCI card for under $50:

Sorry for the late reply, but yes. I did try an old monitor.

Haha, oops, forgot to finish. "Sorry for the late reply, but yes. I did try an old monitor."
And I had the same problem.
