With a pentium 4 there's no reason to get anything more powerful than an HD4670. Also 512mb of ram? Ug, you definitely need more.

If youa re really getting a new system relatively soon you may want to buy a card appropriate for the new one so you don't end up needing to buy 2 video cards. A more powerful card will actually work in your system it just wont use it's full potential.

I see that this system is from 2005. A quick Google search on the model number turned up nothing. There is a slight possibility that this system has an AGP video slot instead of the PCI-E slot. Better make sure before you buy new card.

Not a particularly good deal or card. The HD4670 is roughly twice as powerful and here is one for slightly less than you paid;
