I think this is an easy question for this list:

What card should be used for an Acer AL2017 20" lcd?

Pretty sharp friend thinks he is stuck -- I am guessing he is missing something. 
  but I am a db guy, so basically have no clue.  anyone here have one I can 
borrow?  below are the 'details.'

The monitor is an Acer AL2017 20" lcd with native resolution of sxga+ .
Right now there is no card, it's the chip set on the machine which I want to
overide with a half decent graphics card. This issue is that I can't tell
which card supports sxga+
