I've been meaning to upgrade my graphic card for awhile now, it being integrated. After looking on the internet for a few days, I've decided that the Vision Xtasy 9600 (256 MB) Graphic Card
should fulfill my gaming needs. However I've just learned that the type of graphic card you buy can only be compatible with the type of motherboard you have.
I'm no expert on my PC hardware and therefor have no idea the 'type' of hard drive / motherboard I have. Is there any possible way that I can find this out? I know a long time ago I had a program that gave me all my computer specs.
Also, this PC is an HP Pavilion a818n.
P.S. Is this graphic card standalone?
