Any ideas on the best graphics card available for this mobo? Or I should say something that won’t break my bank say under $200. Perhaps an LCD monitor to go with it for the same price range. Thank you for your time.

You would be better off saving for a new build. The AGP cards and platform is very slow compared to new PC’s. If you want help picking components for a budget gaming build we can help.

I agree with DiiZzY and eric93se. NVIDIA has not made any of its GPUs available for use in AGP cards since the 8500GT. This means that all recently introduced NVIDIA GPUs are offered only in PCI-e cards. And that AGP motherboard was in production before PCI-e was even invented.
