@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.
