Hi, I didn't read through the whole thread so I don't know if you got your answer. Basically if you're talking about the original doom (I && II) you may be out of luck as they run on dos emulation.
But the more likely case is that you're talking about Doom3, this card for about 75USD
would run it fine:
EVGA 256-P2-N741-LR GeForce 8500GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP
7600GS go for about the same price, anything at or over an nvidia 8500 or over an nvidia 7600 will run the game fine.
