And other games like Starcraft 2. So any ideas on some possible upgrades for the Video card, would like to keep the price around or under $100. Cheers.

Anyway, the 5670 is quite a large upgrade for you and will work even if that PSU is a lame OEM one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Helltech a c 153 U Graphics card September 2, 2010 12:20:50 AM You can download and use a program called CPU-z. On the motherboard tab it will tell you both the make and manufacturer of the motherboard as well as the interface slot fo graphics. You can then tell us what that tab says.. benso90 September 2, 2010 12:27:09 AM Okay I found some answers: I/O Interface: Two PS/2 ports 9-pin serial port 25-pin parallel port Eight USB 2.0 ports Ethernet (RJ-45) port VGA port Six audio jacks I/O Expansion Two PCI slots PCI Express x1 slot PCI Express x16 slot And PSU is 300 watt sorry. Helltech a c 153 U Graphics card September 2, 2010 12:29:25 AM If its 300w I would go with the 5670 I suggested. You have a PCI-e x16 slot so the 5670 will work perfect in there. Make sure you uninstall and delete your nvidia drivers before using the ATI drivers for the 5670. benso90 September 2, 2010 1:31:41 AM chipset: INTEL Q65+ICH8 Processor Q6600 Can't find your answer ?
