Given your light usage, practically any $35 AGP 8x card will fit the
bill.  You'll find die hard ATI adherents and die hard nVidia adherents,
but I can so no reason to get parochial.

Here's a bunch of AGP 8x cards at newegg: =

You might consider getting one that has a D-Sub *and* a DVI port, to
give you some monitor flexibility.  I have an Asus version of this card:

SAPPHIRE 100562L-GN Radeon 9600PRO 256MB 128-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X $43

As far as the cheaper cards there, /I/ would probably go with Asus, as
I've been happy with their service policy in the past -- I don't know
anything about HIS.

Any AGP 8X card with, say, 64 to 128MB RAM on-board should be fine. If
you can get a GeForce 6000 series (or better, 7000 series) then go for
it. Should last you a while if its only intended for desktop and
office type work.

If you are looking for something basic, then what do you have currently in
the PC and what improvement are you looking for?
