The second and third ones are incompatible as you need an AGP card.
Also, you need to check that your power supply can handle any new card you buy.

Doesn't look like you have a seperate graphics card slot in your system, i'm just double checking but it looks like you may be stuck with an older PCI (Not PCI Express) graphics card.. which suck

Yep, have checked and no agp slot, you have integrated agp graphics but no physical agp expansion slot.. so you can't use any of the cards you listed without changing the motherboard..

Then you need to find out what graphics expansion slot you have, it will either be AGP or PCI-E (PCI Express) and you will need to buy the relevant card.. if its a recent mobo it will most likely be PCI-E (I think if i remember right, agp slots are usually brown, but i could be wrong)

New one says - Onboard Video: Intel integrated AGP graphics

So this means i can't upgrade?

had a quick scout using google and looks like it only has pci slots, no pci-e or agp slots

not many large companies sell just pci graphics cards anymore

you will need to hunt ebay or even pick up a cheap mobo (£35+ on ebuyer)
