hey dudes it was about time that i changed my graphics card. At the moment i have a ATI Radeon X300SE 128mb. Yes i know that a real old card and i need a new one i needed some suggestions, my price range would be around $150. My omputer has PCIe slots

I have 2gbs DDR ram.

i just need some advice on what i have to look for and what my computer needs to have so i can run a card.

I have an Intel Pentium 4 550 processor and my motheroard is a AsusTek i915p/i195g.

If there is anything else i have to post please tell me thanks

how powerful is your PSU?
anyway, any decent $150 card out there will be much too powerful and will be bottlenecked with a pentium 4.
get something cheaper like a ati 4670 because you won't notice the difference in performance from a more expensive card

AC input voltage (47-63Hz):
DC output wattage: 300 Watts
