    Based on the age of the computer (pentium4) and that it has a 305watt power supply I would suggest a HD4670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131179
    It is about what the CPU can handle without bottleneck.

    What is your current card?
    It's okay for Pentium 4, an old cpu, But with that card(4670) you will see a huge performance increase then your previous graphic(???), it would be a nice upgrade for your PC... :)
  3. thanks for the advice rolli59. wa1 I currently have a 128MB ATI RADEON X300 SE card
  4. I've had a look on amazon but can't find the card you recommend. Would a Sapphire HD4650 1GB DDR2 PCI-E Graphics Card, work?
