Hello, im stuck!!!i want to buy a graphics card for my pc but theres so many i dont know where to start??? the specs as best i know are:

foxconn n15235 mb
3.3ghz intel celeron d cpu
2x 1gb ddr2 ram
pci-e1 16x card slot
vista 32 bit os
will be switching between 42' 1080p tv and this sony monitor im on now 1024 x 768 max res.
i have a dvi to hdmi lead but in the highstreet the guy told me i'd need a sound lead to hook up to my hd tv!?? so wondering if a hdmi to hdmi option is better??? i'll use this pc for games, streaming films and surfing the web alot. can any1 point out some cards for budget and top end plzzzzz

7750 is about all i would recommend for such an old system.

your probably better off swapping out cpu/mb/ram, as they are all cheap nowadays.

Get a cheap HD5450 for single core celeron d cpu. Spending good graphic card on that system will be a waste. No game will run good on that single core celeron.
