Try something from this this page that supports AGP 4x. Use the bar on the left to navigate through various features till you've narrowed it down to your price range and such.

It is always a good plan to run a windows 7 compatibility check prior to upgrading. A tad late now.

This is not intended to be mean spirited.

Use the system as a linux media server and build a new win 7 machine. 7 is and never was designed to run on old, defunct hardware.

Hey never mind!! I figured it out!
I downloaded and ran this driver. ATI Catalyst 6.5
http://www.oldapps.com/ati.php?old_ati_drivers=47#Download
The installation failed but i then manually installed the driver from c:\ati folder...
And it worked! Full resolution 1920x1080!
Sweet saved some cash, so went out and got a new office chair!!!!
Who's the guru now??
