Is there a number on the case of the Acer anywhere, on a sticker on the side perhaps?

Whats your budget and what do you need the card to do?

What kind of games and the budget? You can get a video card from $30 to $500, need to give us an idea.

Being a Celeron 2.0Ghz it has either an AGP 4X or 8X slot. You won't find any new AGP 4x or slower cards and if you do find an AGP 4X card then don't buy it. AGP 8X cards will work in AGP 4X slots and vice versus. And don't get anything too expensive, the higher-end AGP cards need fast processors, a Celeron 2Ghz will hold them back, and they also need 400 watt or 450 watt power supplies, something an Acer will not have - it'll be a 300 watt power supply.
