Your motherboard has an 8x AGP slot, so I would think any modern AGP video card would do. Both Nvidia and ATI based cards should be able to use this resolution, and even in the remote chance it doesn’t show up as an option, you can set custom resolutions in their control panels.

Do you need the ability to play games, or play high definition video? Or do you just need a basic card? Newegg has AGP cards starting at $27 plus shipping if you are in the US, but the very low cost cards are not suitable for games and other demanding tasks. They work just fine for normal computer usage.

The ATI cards seem to be more plentiful in AGP, so you might look at something like this as a basic card. More advanced cards are available of course, depending on your needs and budget.

You should be fine using an AGP card. Normally what happens is that the computer bios is set up to recognize that you have a video card installed, and it becomes the primary video output.
