I've got a dell machine running win xp pro. I intend to upgrade to win7 ultimate as i absolutely love it on my laptop. Running the upgrade advisor tells me that my graphics card is not compatible and i need to upgrade it.
Could any1 recommend me a graphics card that would just about do the job plz?! This is coz i dont play games nor do i run any graphics hungry softwares like matlab/photoshop. The specs of my pc are :
Check out the Radeon 4650 You get a lot of power for only $70.
Otherwise google "wiki Nvidia graphics compare" and "wiki ATI graphics compare"
Compare the latest models out now.
You could make do with a 64-bit memory card, but I would recommend the cheapest 128-bit memory card.
To be fair, you CPU will bottleneck pretty much anything these days. The 8400GS is a good choice for low profile low power, as is the GT220. You ought to get one of these cards for HD videos or Hardware acceleration for HTML5 and Flash 10.1, you'll notice a difference.
