Go HERE to see the specifications on your system.
It looks like you can put a AGP video card in your system.
From what I am seeing the video you have now is onboard and is a 128 meg memory.
I hope this is what you were looking for.
If needed we can try to find a newer video card if you would like.
What is your budget for it and what is the main urpose for the upgrade?

My main purpose of upgrading my video card is because I'm tired of seeing squares in terrain when playing most video games. I guess I could have a limitless budget. The higher priced the item the more time it would take me to save up the money.
