You have PCI slots, you will need to find a PCI based video card to update the computer.

Success!!
Got the Radeon 9200SE PCI (Sapphire brand) and it works great! Just had to disable the onboard graphics (with the BIOS set to AUTO--not Onboard) and install the new card. Then I turned the system on and it recognized the card. I was able to install the drivers, control panel etc too. Looks like the performance will be muuuuuuch better than the "Extreme" graphics (not surprisingly).

 

That is all I can find, it appears it is not a true PCI2.2 compliant device, so choices are limited.
