For Nvidia Gefore, 8800GTX or better; for ATI, HD 3870 or better.
I think you have a motherboard GPU, which is integrated, so you need an actual card.
You also seem to have a Micro ATX form factor motherboard, so you can only use the low profile ready graphics cards. Also what is your power supply watt power? I myself have a micro ATX form factor motherboard and I am waiting for the MSI Radeon HD 5670 or MSI R5670-PD512. At the moment you can get the Radeon Sapphire HD5570 if you have a low watt PSU. If you have higher wattage, then you can go for some of the NVIDIA low profile graphics cards.
So i need a new graphics card? Can someone recommend a good one sorry but very new to the graphics card thing.
I edited my last post. And actually I don't think you have a graphic's card, just an integrated chip in your motherboard. So I will need to know your power supplies' wattage. You can check this by opening you computer (you unscrew and then you slide the panel off, the box with a fan is the power supply.). Certain graphics cards need certain amount of watt to operate efficiently.
Not only do you need a new graphics card, but you'll be limited in what you can get because of your size of the motherboard.
Additionally, you may be limited by your power supply. Most newer video cards require more power now a days and we'll need to know how much wattage your power supply can deliver, and how much amperage on the 12v rails it delivers.
he has an integrated chip and why would he need a low profile card for a m-atx board? low profile cards are for slim cases. if he has a mini-tower or mid-tower case he can use most mid level cards.
in SCII Beta, Nvidia cards showed an advantage over ATI cards. Patches and drivers can fix that issue but like Boris stated, we would need to know your PSU and monitor resolution before anyone can recommend a specific card.
