A new AGP video card is becoming scarce, but New Egg still lists several models. While you may not be able to purchase from New Egg for shipping to the U.K., it is a browsing reference to what is still available. Even eBay should have some decent offers on "new" AGP cards. Ensure the card is 100% compatible to your motherboard slot type! Many 512 meg cards have an extra power socket on the inner edge.. which must be mated to a PSU power lead set. Best is the fan-cooled GPU type.
If the new video card does not have specific drivers for Win 7 or Win 8, check with the provider's Web site.. or Microsoft's site. The OS should have appropriate drivers for older device features in its install library.

Haven't tried Netflix yet, but card is HD and does have an HDMI output. Perhaps you can find one in the U.K.

Thanks again Mark H.
It looks like Newegg does supply to the UK. :D

Thanks for the link Karlsweldt. :D
My AGP card must be a 1.5V card, that info is not included, that makes it difficult to select the correct one.

My AGP slot is also 1.5v, so the card should work fine

There are three basic types of AGP video card slots. With a keying feature, only certain card types can be used. With others, they are somewhat "universal". Speed of data transfer runs from 1x up to 8x.
For many video cards with 256 megs or higher of on-card memory, they likely may have a power socket on the inner edge. This must be mated to a power lead set from the PSU!
