Are you currently using onboard video? If so, do you know the model of your motherboad? That old video card likely won't be of much help to you, but if we can compare the specs of onboard with the old dedicated graphics card, perhaps we can give you a better answer.

Either way, it seems that you will be running on a low amount of video RAM so it may not make a huge difference.

My specs intel pentium E5200 2.5 MGhz

4GB of ram

160 GB HD

motherboard: PVM 900m
about the graphics card i checked and found i got this : VIA CHROME9 HD IGP FAMILY WDDM ( I THINK ITS NOT A GPU thou like its intergranted with the processor or an onboard graphic.

The one that i want to use: all it says on it ::RADEON BE 64 MB
