Best graphics card for Quicksilver 02?

I have a Power Mac G4 Quicksilver 2002 that I'm getting ready to sell, and I'm trying to upgrade it out for the next owner.
Who here knows what the best graphic card for a PM G4 is?
Here's my situation:
OS X 10.4.11 right now on it, wanting to upgrade it to Leopard soon.
512Mb RAM, about to put 1.5Gb in it.
Dual 1Ghz G4, probably going to keep that.
And a 40Gb Hard Drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
-Aaron.
PS. I've looked all over the internet to find this out, and I've gotten mixed answers. Just wanted someone here to clear things up for me.

Don't waste your money unless you are just trying to be nice. The computer is so old that spending more money on it is nothing but a losing investment.

Cheers

You can most likely pick up a ATi 9800 Pro for about $20 and flash it.

Radeon 9800 Pro or the even better 9800XT.
