Trying to work out how to buy a graphics card

I was recently given an old PC by a friend-of-a-friend. His business was downsizing so he had some spare. Its not a bad machine, but its a little dated and the graphics card just cannot cope with modern applications. I've thought about putting Linux on it, but I rely too much on my Windows apps, and have never had much luck running Wine.

Anyway I'm definitely more of a software person than a hardware person. I've been trying to find a graphics card that will work nicely. I've been looking around but I really don't quite understand the choices involved. I'm not even too sure if its an ATI, PCI or PCI Express slot I've got yet!

Maybe sometimes soon I'll get around to prising open the case and having a look. Until then, I'm going to have to make do as it is.
