Default Video Card Question

Should I use a nVidia GeForce 6100, stock onboard. Or ATI Radeon x700 Pro?

Any graphic card is better than integrated.

and just making sure, since the 6100 is onboard then the x700 would fit?

Is the X700 PCIe or AGP? And what graphic card slot, do your motherboard have?

Use a program called CPU-Z, to determine if you have an AGP graphics slot or not. It's in the mainboard tab.
