What graphics card can I get?

I'm not very savvy with hardware and I was wondering what kind of Graphics card I could get with my HP s5220f desktop. I like to play Team Fortress 2, Call of Duty 4, and Counter Strike: Source. Here is a link to m system specs:

Thank you!

More about what graphics card
  1. Well, none of those are very graphically-demanding, at least to today's hardware, so probably in the $50-70 range, but because your pc is a slimline pc, it might not fit some cards... It may have to be a low-profile card. I would recommend a 4650.

    Here's a regular card:

    Here's a low-profile card:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102829&cm_re=4650-_-14-102-829-_-Product

    And I'm pretty sure it's going to need to be low profile.

    Another thing to note is that the power supply in that computer (220w) may not be powerful enough to support a new card... Something like a 400w would be plenty.

    Thanks a ton mate! Will my current power supply be able to handle the low profile card you linked me to?
  3. 220 is really low, and the 4650 uses somewhere between 30 and 50 watts... If I were you, I would get a new power supply. Unfortunately, I do not know if your power supply is a proprietary HP model, in which case you would need to buy one from HP, or if any ATX power supply would work, in which case newegg.com is your best bet...

    sorry to bother you once more, but how do I know if a power supply will work with my current machine?

    Thank you
