Yeah, no video card is going to make your machine "great" or even what I would call "ok" for gaming on that CPU. You can do better than the FX 5500 but you should really just save up to replace your motherboard/cpu/ram before considering a card. It doesn't have to be very expensive.

The processor is actually a quad core with two cores locked. There's an over 80% chance you can unlock them in the motherboard's BIOS and it will work fine.

+1 to that. upgrade the cpu to a faster core2 duo if you cant afford to get new motherboard and everything.

edit: lol, woah a minute there...fx 550 lol. i was thinking gts550. HAHAHah. Go get a whole new computer, upgrades are out of the question. Even new onboard video will be much better than a fx 550

I really doubt he can use a core 2 duo on his current motherboard. That is a Pentium 4 era Celeron.

Agreed. Building a new system would be faster and cheaper than trying to upgrade.

You just selected a best answer, so likely the thread will be closed soon. I suggest you start a new one, list you budget, game/apps you would like to run on the new system, and what resolution/settings you want to play at.
