I have a 64 Bit, Win 7 64 desktop wih a built in video card. I use the computer mostly just for word processing etc. A friend of mine gave me a Gigabyte GV-R4350C-5121 video card.

Here are some specs off the computer courtesy of sysinfo:

Intel G41 Express Chipset
Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family

I do use the computer to watch movies from my phone or You Tubes.

Is there a benefit to instaling this card or am I just better off without it?

Well, the card should be at least 5x better than the onboard graphics card that you have. Also, the card use very little to none power, so you don't have to worry about power supply.
