Low-Budget Graphics Card to match my new display (1920x1080)


I recently got a new display (Samsung SyncMaster P2250) and the PC I'm using it on has a pretty outdated hardware configuration, making my main problem the graphics card. The PC is a Compaq Presario SR1010Z.
CPU: 1.80 GHz AMD Sempron
RAM: 512MB (upgrading to 1GB/2GB soon)
MOBO: ASUSTek Computer INC. Salmon 1.04
Graphics: SiS 760 (Display adapter)

What I need is a new graphics card that can output FullHD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, and I also need to know whether my current configuration can even support a graphics card like that. If so, I need to find a low-budget card that will perform nicely, hopefully something that'll be able to play 720p/1080p video (but not necessarily).
If not, what needs changing in order to get a matching graphics card to work in the system?

Thanks in advance. :)

    I think it has 3 PCI Slots and 1 AGP (8x).
  3. To tell you the truth i would save up and make a new pc altogether. If not here is a card that should handle 1080p decently.
  4. invisik, I totally agree, but I don't have the dough ATM.
    sabot00, thanks. :D
