ALL modern GeForce/Radeon HD cards will work on your PC. It really comes down to what you will use it for and the other hardware that your system has.

currently the graphics card is Intel (R) G33/G31 Express Chipset family. I am looking to get an really good video card of Geforce for supporting my online game Lineage II so which one is worth getting for my pc?

For cheap low range graphics cards Amd is really the way to go.

The game "lineage II" does not have particularly high requirements like most other MMOs. A HD5450 would be enough but if you're looking for something slightly better I'd say a HD5670. You won't need any more unless you plan on 'offline gaming'

so your telling me the HD5670 or Hd5450 is better than a Geforce video card for my laptop uses a nvidia Geforce Go 6150 and the graphics on the game is what i am looking to obtain. however if the HD5670 or HD5450 are as good i may go that route. your thoughts?

Huh? It's a laptop? I thought that with the E2220 it was a desktop PC.

no, i have a laptop as well as my E2220 Desktop PC

Yes, the Go 6150 is a low end notebook graphics solution. Even low end desktop cards will outperform it.

that's fine, so to answer my question the HD video cards are better than Geforce or is it similar for my online gaming?

Depending on which model of the GeForce or HD, they could perform similarly but Ati tends to give a bit more on lower end cards than Nvidia.
