  1. Please provide more details. Do you mean you have a desktop PC with Intel graphics, and you want to upgrade to a PCIe Nvidia card? People do that all the time, so please tell us what problem you have run into.
  2. I really just want to play better games. Ive got an Intel Q965 Q963 Express Family Chipset and want something better. Like GeForce...

    WIN XP SP3
    4Ghz Intel D Pentium (x2)
    4gb RAM
    1tb HD
  3. Desktop too, srry
  4. All you need to do is this:

    Confirm the type of video card slot your have, probably PCIe.
    Confirm the rating of your power supply.
    Purchase a video card, and if necessary, a larger power supply.
    Download the latest video driver direct from Nvidia or AMD.
    Install the card and power supply if needed.
    Boot into Windows.
    Install the video driver.
  5. Get a Radeon 5770 or 6770. Your Pentium D can't be running at 4 gig, unless you are overclocking it.

    A higher-end video card will be held back by the CPU, although if you run at resolutions past 1280x1024 you may want a higher-end card that should allow yo to run at higher detail. Check the link in my sig for details on the cards.
  6. That seems fairly easy though too.
    I probably am coming off a bit retarded buuuuttt...whats the power supply?

    Where the power cord goes, squarish metal thing about 8 inches on a side, usually top of the case.

    Of you can just start licking things. Whatever part hurts the most is the power supply.
