CPU Athlon XP 2100+
Motherboard QDI Kudoz 7E333
2,2 Gb Ram ddr1 2100 266mhz
AGP Card GeForce 4 mx 420 64 Mb
Windows XP Sp3

I want to use this computer for watching youtube hd videos and hd videos in general without glitchs, delays, no games, but must have power for 2D..i don't want any kind of glitches, lags, and so on while I'm surfing the web or reading pdfs or doing my stuff in Office.

In all honesty, your machine is very outdated. It is nearly impossible to upgrade it, since most of your components are 5+ years old and won't support newer technologies.

I would recommend buying a completely new computer, since upgrading yours would easily cost the same(since you would have to scrounge for all the components).

If you need help, buying or building a new computer, then you are definetely in the right place. Simply open a thread in the system builder forums and you should get help immediately.

Good luck!

Uh, his PC is from Windows XP era which is perfectly fine for the tasks he named above...

This should do the trick:

If you reinstall Windows XP and updated all your drivers you would probably see one heck of a difference.

And get this for less than $40: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hi, thanks for the answer.
All the upgrade and reistallations are already done. This computer is fast when i used to go on the websites or use office and so on...but I have some difficulties with HD videos. Some friends of mine says that from Nvidia 6200 card to Sapphire 4650 agp would solve the problem with High Definitions glitches, delays...but an Nvidia 5200FX can make also the difference (and will work well with HD) like this range of videocards?

Thank you again,

I just bought a Shappire AGP 4650 (Very Rare) to find. If you put the 4650 AGP on your computer it will damage your computer. Snice you got weak Powersupply and maybe a weaker than mines Motherboard (Photon PF1 i865E) Socket 478MPA .

My suggestion for your computer snice you dont play games is Geforce 6200 AGP or maybe VisionTek 3450 AGP(For this card you might slightly need a little better powersupply).

a 4650 AGP will not damage your computer. It barely sips any power and is far more powerful than the outdate 6200 and 3560.

(6xxx series are like....7-8 years old?... 1xxx ati series are around the same age)

+ you'll be only watching HD videos... no video card will take more than 20w-30w to do that.

It's fine... grab one while you can still find it.

Selection of AGP Graphics http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

(Buy New one only)

My suggestion is
Visiontek 3450 AGP (Buy from Amazon for that Card) <A little better powersupply for this one also or you have some booting issues due to power)
Geforce 6200 (Newegg)

If you want to try 4650 AGP (But those are super hard to find i have check daily just to find one ) Best one is Shappire 4650 AGP. (And you need a way better powersupply than a 300WATT for the 4xxx)

Thanks for the answers. I decided to buy a 6200...because i don't want to buy a new atx for my pc. I will let you know how it works with hd videos. Thanks again for the answers. D
