Default Need video card recommendation

I just purchased a LaCie 321 monitor. It's connected to a VGA port on an
older Matrox Millennium card. The MB is an Asus P3V4X withan AGP/4x
slot. It's probably AGP 1 because it doesn't say otherwise in the
manual, nor does it give voltages. The new monitor can take both VGA and
DVI-I input.

I'm looking for a replacement video card with a DVI-I port (plus a
second port, VGA or DVI) which will work on my MB. All cards I've seen
to date seem to require at least AGP 2.

TIA
Steve

I believe that you must have an AGP 2 slot, if the board supports AGP 4X (as
claimed in your manual; I checked it my downloading the manual from
support.asus.com).

To verify, see:

If your AGP slot has the keys for both the 3.3V and 1.5V cards, you should
be able to use most AGP 3 cards (4X/8X), which will make your choice a lot
easier.

I admit to some curiosity as to why you're attaching an expensive monitor to
such an ancient PIII/Slot 1 PC, but that'd your choice.

I just installed a nvidia 5200 into one of those boards if this helps.

Thanks for your very helpful reply. I think I'm on my way.

BTW, why put LaCie 321 on old MB? - I do no gaming, do a lot of
Photoshop. Speed is less important than monitor quality and my
Mitsubishi Diamond Pro was four years old and I could no longer get
reliable monitor profiles with my Color Vision spyder.
