(I limited the search to DX 10, 10.1, and 11, to weed out the older cards.)
The 4600ti was a great card... 10 years ago. What sort of drivers
are you using for it? nVidia's support ended with XP for that series.
I see that they're using a Socket 754 motherboard (vintage 2003).
Maybe you should just blow the dust out of the 4600 with some canned air, and see if its health is restored.
I question the wisdom of buying any upgrades at all for a system that old. Regardless, due to obsolescence, AGP graphic cards tend to be priced higher than their PCI-E versions.
