Windows 7: Need video card for Windows 7 Ultimate

Need video card for Windows 7 Ultimate

Currently running 3.2ghz P4 with a radeon AGP 9200 128mb. 2g ram. 320HD
Upgraded to Windows 7 ultimate and card still functions, But does not operate all Windows 7 features, specifically aero. I'm having a problem trying to find a AGP card with 1g mem and dual DVI that is FULLY compatible with Windows 7. Tried newegg, tigerdirect, and a few others. The cards are out there but many posts claim driver issues for 7, aero will not work issues, etc.
Can someone please help.

You'll have no driver issues with me around. Don't worry. Get what I have, exactly in my specs and you will love it. (HIS Radeon HD 3850 IceQ 3 Turbo HDMI Dual DL-DVI AGP)

If you can't find it for sale, get the ATI HD 4xxx line which is almost as good from Gigabyte or HIS as well. They lack a little compared to HIS 3850 because they all only use 128 bit memory instead of 256.

Let me know when you need help with drivers. No problem.

Just make sure you aren't running an nForce3 or lower motherboard. Which motherboard do you have?

Either one will be no problem and work perfectly with Windows 7. (Those people that reviewed didn't have my help. )

But ya, before you purchase anything, knowing about which motherboard it is exactly is a must.

Doesn't matter which one. Anything ATI HD for the AGP slot I can get to work easily with WDDM 1.1 Windows 7 support (as long as motherboard chipset is supported - like I said, no nForce3 or lower chipset.)

...and POST the motherboard name a little later. I know it includes the mboard and PSU as well. I don't see why any of those previous three I listed would not run the Windows 7 Aero feature???
I do receive a flicker on both of my monitors from time to time when running full tilt poker app and a few other things...

And how would I know if mine is lower than nForce3
