Any graphics card that has at least pixel shader and vertex shader 1.1 will work with XNA.

Sadly, I do not have a list of said cards ... however, might I suggest that you simply go down to your favorite local hardware store (or give it a try even if you don't like the place) and say to them, "I'd like to look at video cards which are not old"

I'm sure they can help you find one which is dx9 compatible :-)

Just needs to be a DX9, shader 1.1 compatible card.

Go here

pick a card, any card, select the "View all Specifications" link at the bottom. Somewhere in the specs you will see it list a shader model version.

Honestly, you'd have to try pretty hard to find a video card that isn't at least shader model 1.1 these days.
