Ok so im working with a AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core processor 7 gig ram and a nvidia geforce 6150se nforce 430 card. The card is in the motherbord so I cant take it out. There is what i believe is a 16 pin slot and 2 smaller ones on the board. When trying to run newer MMO's even with everything turned down to low i lag out bad. The old psu burned out a couple years ago and i put in a tr2 430w. I dont want to buy a new pc so im trying to find a new card that will work with what I got, or some kinda booster card if that could be done. The os is Vista home premium 64 bit.
any advice would be great.
Thank you

Manufacturer's motherboard name: Pegatron M2N68-LA
HP/Compaq name: Narra6-GL6

If your motherboard has a PCIE slot, you can simply get any current PCIE card that fits your budget. Even a low-end modern GPU like a 2GB R7-250X GDDR5 would be a significant upgrade if you have a PCIE slot to plug it in.

Well that is an older integrated video setup. It sounds like you have a PCI-E 16x slot and 2 PCI-E 1x slots which is about right for that chipset. To get better video performance go to a discrete video card. I wouldn't spend a lot since it's such an old motherboard, Perhaps a GT 730 or a R7 250 VGA card. They should be under $100 and be an improvement over what you have until you are able to afford a motherboard, CPU & RAM upgrade. Be sure to disable the onboard graphics in the BIOS. In most cases the motherboard will do it automatically when it detects a VGA plugged in but it helps to check. Also you can set you graphics in the BIOS to PEG (PCI-E Graphics).
