Hi all, I am pretty new to the computer gaming world. I have a HP Pentium III 1.0 Gig computer with a standard video card. I am looking to add on a 3d graphics acceletor card and have no idea what I need. Do I need a new video card and a graphics card? Just a 3d graphics card? Can I buy one thing that will have all I need. What is the best bang for the buck? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Almost all GeForce 2/3 cards are both 2D as 3D and will replace your video card. I think a GeForce3 Ti200 or GeForce2 Ti (which is cheaper) will be a good choise.
My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground .
Geforce 2/3 depending on dolla - or the ATI range are quite good.

Of course, this is all assuming that he has an AGP slot.

If you have the i815 chipset, you probably have an AGP slot. Any good video card is a good choice, I would recomend a GeForce 2 GTS or better. The best bang for the buck around $100 is the Gainward GeForce2 Ti/450. The best bang for around $200 is the Radeon 8500 OEM.
