Dimension 4550 Replacement Video Card -Monitor

I am still using the CRT monitor which came with the above PC purchased 2003 and am increasingly frustrated by  having to use the bottom scroll bar. I am looking to replace this with a widescreen Analoge / Digital Monitor about 20 / 22 inch screen. The PC is a workhorse i.e. non gaming and the like, but occassional TV. However, I understand my PC spec. particularly the Vidio Card will not support other than a  4 : 3 aspect ratio screen. Would welcome suggestions for   1) Replacement Vido Card and if known -  availability and price. Price is important given age of the system, which however still works well and meets my needs.    2)  Appropriate Monitor

My PC spec. is as follows:-  Dimension 4550  Intel Pentium 4 CPU  2.00 GHz   -   1GB  RAM  -  ATI  Rage 128 Ultra (16MB ) Video card  -  30 GB IDE Hard Drive (5400rpm)  -  48 x  DVD / CDRW  Combo Drive  -  Dimension  4550 ) P 4.2  OGHz / 512k  (400 FSB )  Integrated Sound and NIC with Floppy Disc.

We have recently switched to Digitial in this area.   Technicial novice would welcome any suggestions and / or advice.

Check out the LCD monitors HERE  and the AGP video cards HERE

The 4550 supports AGP x4 video cards, the AGP x8 cards are backwards compatible to AGP x4.
