    can you recommend one plz? im looking at video card specs on ebay and i can't find one that says anything about shader models and that's what the installer says i need is shader model 3 and i don't know whether to spend $10 or $300 and i don't know if they'll even work with my PCI port or my PCI express and i don't even know which kind of port i have or if its even called a port!!!!? :(
  4. The best currently available card you can use in your system without replacing your power supply is a low profile HD5570. It will do fairly well for gaming at low resolutions(1280x1024 and below.) This one would be a decent choice;

    +1 Good recommendation to keep the OP from spending a ton of money.

    Ultimately, it surely wouldn't hurt to buy a new system. :) But the HD 5570 will certainly get you playing, without spending an arm and a leg, or building your own PC. It's the cheap and quick fix to your problem.
