Is it an Integrated Graphics system or does it have an AGP Video card? (Advanced Graphics Port)
If it has Integrated Graphics (The video is built into the motherboard) then you need to open the case and see if you have an AGP slot. (Not all systems with Integrated Graphics do.) It should be brown in color and set back a bit unlike the white PCI slots.
If you do have an AGP slot, you will need to know if itís 4x or 8x as some 8x AGP cards will not work in a 4x slot.
You can also go into your systems BIOS for AGP speeds if you don't know what it might be.
Check ATIís or nVidia web sites for more info on AGP card speeds.
Once you know the above info, you can then start shopping for a card.
