A friend of mine has a Dell Dimension3000 which has an Intel Celeron D 330 @ 2.66GHZ and 1GB of DDR RAM. He has no dedicated graphics card. I need to find one that will fit with this computer. Does this seem OK? http://www.algogo.com/store/products/256MB-NVidia-Gefor... Here are the specs( RAM=1GB) http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/e... Would he need a new PSU?

The OS is Windows XP 32bit Home SP3. jeffredo a b U Graphics card February 25, 2012 5:11:49 PM He has no PCI-E slot and the bus width on PCI isn't sufficient for gaming beyond something like Diablo II.
