AGP is very old and finding a card will be very hard you might want to look into upgrading your entire unit or buy a cheaper one at the store then add and mid range card that will allow you better performance

According to the spec, you have several problems. The first is that the graphics slot is AGP. That's rather limiting at this time. The second is that because it's a SFF machine, it can only take low profile cards. The worst problem is that the power supply is only 175W.

Not sure what to recommend. The best card that I find at www.newegg.com (no, they don't serve the UK) is a Radeon HD 4350. Low-end, low power.

Radeon HD 4350 requires at least a 300W power supply... I don't think a 175W PSU can handle it, since the PC run a Pentium 4 which consumes a lot of power and run several legacy devices.
