Given your circumstances, about the best you're going to do is a geforce fx5500, which is at least a dx9 card

Here's the only one I can still find in production

Don't you like how they stiff those without an AGP card? The eVGA FX5500 AGP 256MB with DVI is only 66. But what about PCI express - I guess if your mobo can support it):

Not a bad price compared to some other ones - and DVI if you want.

pci express is not the same thing as pci, it is actually the replacement for agp
