that's not a good video card at all but if that's what you're looking for, newegg is the place to get it from.

What video card do you recomend that I get? Remember all I have is PCI. Are there any good PCI video cards that I could get 2 of and link them?

Looks like you have to get going right now your computer is poor. Get out and get it upgraded now bish

Technically, it's a proper noun so it should be spelled E-machine or E-Machine.

Technically, it's a company name, and it's spelled and capitalized how the company see's fit, since it wasen't a word untill they made it up for the crappy door stop computers.

Like I said, your selection of video cards is going to be very, very limited to older cards and really crappy generic cards. That computer will never be a gaming computer. I guess you could replace the motherboard, you'd have to find one that fits (including the I/O on the back panel) but would it be worth it on such a cheap computer?
