I have an HP Pavilion p6277c desktop
Info about it is located in: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01...

Its a windows 7 64 bit. It says it suports: Supports PCI Express x16 graphics card. I have no idea if thats a 1.0, 2.0 or 2.1.
I want to update the video card to one with 1gig for playing games like left 4 dead and other valve games without being so jumpy when playing.

Are cards like:

Gigabyte nVidia GeForce 210 1 GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card GV-N210D3-1GI
Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 1 GB DDR3 HDMI/DVI-I/VGA PCI-Express Graphics Card 100292DDR3L
EVGA GeForce GT 520 1024 MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI/Mini-HDMI Graphics Card, 01G-P3-1526-KR

good enough for these types of games?

Thanks

The Intel G43 Express Chipset on the HP Pavilion p6277c's motherboard supports PCI Express Revision 1.1.

Does that mean it won't support pci express 2.x cards?

All versions of PCI Express are backwards compatible so yes, a PCI-E 2.x card will work in a 1.x slot.

Those are fairly week cards & maybe good only for very low resolutions. What is your monitor resolution? 1280x1024? 1366x768? 1920x1080, etc...
