Firstly, what are you going to be using the pc for? Do you require high powered graphics for gaming? Also, what monitors do you have and what connections do they have? i.e. is one standard VGA and one DVI?

20 year old graphics card..hmm, I doubt it's 20 years old if it's running in a "new" PC.

what type of slot do you have? AGP, PCI, PCI-E?
do you want to play games ?

Yeah, I also agree considering PCI didn't hit mainstream until like late 1994.
