Unless i'm deeply mistaken your card is a agp one and thats the only graphics slot your mainboard has. Now the current and latest graphics card i'm afraid are based on the pci-express interface so its not as easy as you going out there and getting any card.
If you're not looking for a total system upgrade then make sure to get an agp card. Perhaps a geforce 7600gt if you want good value for money or a 7900gs or even 7950gt if you're into more serious gaming.
Keep in mind tho that the 7xxx seriesmis just dx 9 while the latest is dx 10.

Only 7800 is available as AGP and its seriously over kill for your PC. Get a 7600GT

i got a 6600GT AGP and im sure these are still aval..... fairly cheap too - does the job for me mate! and will be better than your current card

yes but if you're even remotely serious about gaming, 6600 doesnt cut it.

does for me

i guess it depends if you wanna make the switch to pci-express which sadly is a total system upgrade - just offering the guy a cheap alternative and i can vouch that i have no problem playing games (although i admit i havent run any of the new ones... but company of heros runs like a dream

guess it depends on the guys wallet....

although for 65 this seems fairly decent -
