Suitable graphics card for Pentium 4?
Any suitable graphics card for Pentium 4 2.40 ghz 512 RAM?, Just any cheapest and fine enough to fix my computer's HD video problems.

I agree with you, I remember having a AMD Athlon-XP 2100+ and it was similar to Pentium-4 in term of performance, and I couldn't play full HD videos back in the days, that was big argument for me to get a new PC lol!

Spanking? Lol! Nah, all replies were very polite. It's just that everyone comes to the realization that it's time for him to get a new PC. I wouldn't advise putting money into such an old computer, it will be hard to find parts and they will cost more.
hang-the-9 made a very good suggestion, if he's on a tight budget, he could spend 150$-200$ and get a used PC with a dual-core CPU plus 2 GB of RAM and it will outperform his P4 and at least be able to play HD content.
Or if he has more money he could get a brand new entry-level PC for around 500$.
