I recently bought a computer, and I'm wanting to replace my old Graphics card with a better one.

My current graphics card information is:

Novatek 563A (1280x1024@60Hz)
Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family

These one's don't play anything that requires a good graphics card, for example, I cannot play minecraft with this current setup.

Thanks for the help.

Yeah, you are running off integrated graphics, What processor/power supply do you have?

Not sure if this is it or not, but it's okay to try once and a while. Below is the CPU usage:

Intel Pentium 4 630
Prescott 90nm Technology

Motherboard(Just in case I have something wrong):

Dell Inc. 0JC474 (Microprocessor)

Really going to use a pciex 2.1 x16 card on a pciex 1 x1 motherboard?
Just a side note, and not joking, that computer should have been handed out for free so ancient it is.

It was just a suggestion, Given the system, says it is backwards compatible. $60 is not the end of the world. When he is ready to build there are other ideas.

something that is unwieldy in size, anachronistically outmoded, or unable to adapt to change: The old steel mill was a dinosaur that cost the company millions to operate.

Yeah I know, I find it hard to recommend anything also. Any upgrade in that system is overkill. You can't buy a 10 yearold system and go upgrading it right after. What's the point?

Thanks for the answers, I have a much better computer now that I built myself, even on a small budget, I currently have a NVidia GT 610 graphics card in my current build and I can do a lot more with that.


Cheers,

Jake.
