Components for Building Computers From Scratch/Video Card


Hi I have a Compaq Presario SR2038X Media Center desktop and it has 2.5gb of ram 250gb hard drive, AMD Athlon 64x2 3800+ 2.0GHz dual core processor. I plan on putting the full 4gb of ram in it later on. And it is currently running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. I was wondering if you could recommend a graphics card for this computer. I mainly plan on using it for movies and general everyday computing. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

According to the motherboard specs of your computer you will need a PCI Express 16X card. This site still has some in stock. Look for the cards on this page that are 16X.
You will see a significant performance improvement.

I can answer most any question in this category for the home desktop builder and for most gaming PC builders. This includes what kind of case, cooling products, overclocking, all hardware, software, and safety issues. I can also advise on where the best sources for purchasing hardware are on the net.
