Does your motherboard have PCI-E or AGP slot for the video card?
If you really want to buy a video card for that PC we must know what type of slot you have on your motherboard.

This whole Dont bother with a P4 is cobblers. Depends on what you are wanting?expecting out of it. For a base line i would say dont go above a HD 4670 performance wise or else you will start to be noticably restricted buy your CPU.

^ True, if you are still running a P4, you apparently don't need a whole lot. Would help to know what you have currently though, and what you are expecting.

Radeon HD 5570,5670,5770?
It is a single core,i think anything higher than a 5770 will bottleneck.

Actually, it is anything above the 5570 or GT240! I have done quite a few tests! :lol:
