I've used that card to install dual monitors on GX270's. It is an outstanding card. If you can not find an acceptable AGP alternative (as in at least as good as the PNY, even if it isn't AGP) I'd go with the PCI card, then disable the on-board through the device manager.
The PNY card will work. I have used that particular card in AGP capable, and even PCI EXPRESS capable machines because its reasonably priced and Very compatable. If you have XP SP2 you just plug in and use because SP2 has the NVIDIA 56.72 WHQL drivers and Directx 9.0c.This one will also but its AGP.
The bracket will need to be exchanged. Keep the other one however as you may wish to re-use on a non SFF system later.

My PNY "endorsement" was on the PCI card, which will NOT have to be half-height. It will sit sideways in the PCI slot (in the riser cage).
The PCI card will work with 160watt power supply. (At least it has for me. Your mileage may vary :-) )
