Radeon 9800 PRO died in a 2003 XPS. Replacement Suggestions?

Hey all,

I have an old 2003 Dell XPS. The Video card (which I'm prett sure is a Radeon 9800 PRO AGP) decided to almost die yesterday. I will eventually pick up a new PC but does anyone have any suggestions on a potential video card to put in to replace this for the short term?

The part is listed as 6W523 Card, Graphic, 128MB, 9800 dimension under the service  tag info.

I think somthing like the VisionTek Radeon X1650 PRO 512MB AGP or the Diamond X1650AGP256TSB ATI Radeon Viper X1650 Pro 256MB AGP GDDR2 Dual DVI Video Card would work (both of which I can at least find to buy) but I'm not sure. I don't want to spend that much since I'd rather use the money for a new PC.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
