whatever, any PCIE 2.0 X16 graphics card will work on it.... ( that's about the type ) Model and make of the card will depend on your pc specs and what you will need the graphics card for

This is terrible advice. His computer has a Pentium 4 and a 305w PSU. The vast majority of video cards both cannot run on his computer without a new PSU and would be wasted on such a weak processor.

He came here for advice from people that know what they are talking about. He likely doesn't have the knowledge to properly evaluate what you said and probably didn't figure someone would knowingly(assuming you actually do have a clue) give him such lazy and inappropriate advice.

EDIT: Also funny that after the fact you edit your comment to not seem as misleading as it was.
