Blizzard says it works on a nVidia 64MB FX5500. I would suggest a 6 or 7 series card as they can be had for under $100. Tom's Hardware recommends the 7600GS as the "Best Card for the Money" under $100. If you can expand on what price range and AGP or PCI-e connection I'm sure I can narrow your search down.

I have a Dell dimension 2400, and it has no PCIe x16 slots or AGP. With my computer I got a PCI slot ATI Radeon X1300. If thats too much money I'd suggest getting an ATI 9250.

Best PCI slot card.

Heres the best one if your looking for something cheaper. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814102533

Really though PCI graphics cards aren't that great, and an x1550 for a PCIe x16 slot would cost probably half the price and be better.

And for the love of God don't get one without a fan. That's a performance drop waiting to happen. The one Sterling14 recommended is great for what you want.
