Can you help? I need a video card for older computer

I don't have the newest of computers, it's an older AMD Athlon 1.2 Gig or so, and I'm not a big gamer either. Today my video card crapped out on me, it's a Nvidia Geoforce 4 MX 420. I don't know if it was the best card or anything, but it was good enough, while it worked. It was actually a free replacement for my original Nvidia card that also crapped out on me. So now I need a new card, and since I don't keep up on this kind of stuff I have no idea what to look at. If there is something like slightly better than what I had, and maybe not Nvidia since they don't last for me, I'd like to know. I'm not looking for a $200 video card, just something to do the job. Any suggestions?

I don't have a price range yet, but the Radeon looks more attractive to me. I'm not sure my motherboard can do 8x. I know it can do 4x, but it's old like everything else, and I don't keep up with this stuff until I look to buy again.
