@Sanderr109 , welcome to the forum.
Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the computer. In Chapter 3, Illustrated parts catalog, Page 19, is a list of compatible video cards. Of course, due to the age of the computer, none of them are very up to date. I suggest that you choose a manufacturer of video cards and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system. They are the experts on their products and normally have a good idea of which cards are compatible with which computer manufacturer's products. This will save you time, money and frustration.
Note: You may have to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU), also. It is only 300W. Most of the newer cards require a minimum of 400W to operate properly.
