Default Suitable AGP Graphics Card for Edius 5?

I wish to upgrade to Edius 5 but my current PC only has AGP and 2 x PCI-X slots, one of which has my NX card in. My current graphics card is a Canopus WF17 quite old now. At present I am looking at the Sapphire Radeon HD 3850 or 3630 with 512Mb and Pixel Shader 4.1. Many other AGP cards take up room for two slots and I dont have the space. Anyone using the above which I am given to understand run hot or any other card suggestions?
Dual 3.06 Xeon, 2Gb memory, NX card, Edius 4.6, Procoder 2.

Sapphire Radeon HD 3850 NEWER ONE HAS A LARGER FAN ( and does come in AGP last offering in that format from saphire) and seems to run cooler! not much though! I have a coolermaster case with 5 120mm fans 2 at the bottom pulling in cool floor level air and 2 at the top 1 at the rear pulling warm air out - system remains very cool after a days work - along with several hours of PC3 rendering into various formats

The thing is these are single slot cards and take up very little space so are ideal for NXe users who also want a PCI raid controller card - as I employ

Asus P5K64WS, Intel Core 2 Quad QX6850 Extreme CPU, Saphire HD 3850 512mb graphics, WDraptor160 OS, Highpoint Rocket raid 2310 4 x 500gig Seagate sata 2 se drives in raid 0, NXe and Edius 5.51 Imaginate 2.
Procoder 3.06 and various Prodad add-ons
