you should look up the word vague!
from the socket 775 and 2.93 GHz, it sounds like an Intel Core2Duo, a chip getting a little long in the tooth (2007-8)
you should be fine with any modern video card. for what you have, I'd say don't go any higher than an ATI Hd6870 or NVidia GTX560ti.
Thanks guys, Was looking at some graphics cards and some are for PCI-Express and just PCI i know my motherboard has a PCI-Express slot are these better than normal PCI? and will any graphics card work aslong as it says PCI express?
yes, any PCI express 16 graphics card will work
Yes PCI-E has a lot more bandwidth than PCI, and its the ideal slot for a graphics card. Keep in mind that cards such as a 6870 or a 560 Ti (very good choices) will require dedicated power, with one or two (depending on VGA) power cables coming from your PSU. Look for a cable like this:
^Yes and no. If the PSU doesn't have PCI power connectors, you can use adapters, but ONLY if the PSU is otherwise capable of providing the required power. What brand and model is your "600W" PSU? If it is something like a Corsair or OCZ (not sure Seasonic and Antec have a 600W model right now) you should be fine. If, otoh, it is a Diablotek, Logisys, or other Chokemax brand, it will likely only be good for 60% of its label, and will die under the load from a high-end graphics card (possibly taking other parts with it).
