Graphics card upgrade if possible.

Ok I bought this computer many years ago and trying to upgrade it a little till I can afford to buy the wife a new one.

Here are her computer specs:

Card, Planar, Transformer Sky Dive Minitower, XPS-G4, Mid-LifeKicker
PROCESSOR..., 80547, PENTIUM 4 PRESCOTT DT..., 650, SKT-T, MALE...
Cord, Power, 125V, 6Feet, SJT..., Unshielded
CARD (CIRCUIT)..., MULTI-MEDIA..., AUDIO..., 1394, SB0358
CARD (CIRCUIT)..., GRAPHICS..., 256, X850, UHMGA12
Hard Drive, 160GB, Serial ATA 7.2K, 8MB, NATIVE COMMAND QUEUEING..., Seagate
Hard Drive, 160GB, Serial ATA 7.2K, 8MB, NATIVE COMMAND QUEUEING..., Seagate
ASSEMBLY..., CABLE..., Serial ATA..., TRANSFORMER SKY DIVE MINITOWER..., 2.0
DUAL IN-LINE MEMORY MODULE..., 1G, 533M, 128X64, 8, 240, 2RX8

I have already upgraded her memory to 4gb and want to give her a better graphics card if possible as well.

I am no computer guru so any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

More about graphics card upgrade possible
  1. I don't think your motherboard will have a pcie slot which is required for graphics cards. Please provide the motherboard model number.
  2. As far as I can tell the model number of the mother board is U7084 0U7084
  3. Get new system dude.pentium 4 is very bad for gaming. Under 6.5 k u will get new cpu and mobo.

    Your board has a pcie x16 slot just buy a card and put it in that slot.
    Another problem is your processor. It is very slow if you try to put a graphics card the CPU will bottleneck it. So have to go for a very slow card like a hd 5450 $30. Or hd 6570 $70
    My advise is that don't waste any money on this because if you want to upgrade any thing you will also have to update a whole lot of other things too.
    You can build a good system at $400-$600.
  5. Thanks for all the replys, as stated earlier just trying to make this computer a little better without breaking the bank till I can get her another rocket ship.
