Right now I'm looking to revive my old OptiPlex 170L a little bit by throwing a peppy graphics card in it, but I can't seem to find any concrete answers on what the fastest ones are. Only real things I'm looking for is PCI, low profile, ideally VGA + DVI output (HDMI would be nice but I understand a lot of cards like this not having it), and not breaking the bank.
So far the best contender is the Radeon HD 3450, but I'm open for other cards that are faster and not much more money (card I have my eyes on right now is 20 USD). Thanks for any help y'all can offer.
Compaq Presario 2286: Cyrix MII 250MHz, 256MB PC100 SDRAM, SiS Integrated graphics, SoundBlasterPCI 128 (for cleaner output signal), 4GB Seagate (OS), 40GB Maxtor DiamondMax+ 9 (games and MIDIs)
