Default What is the best video card for this computer?

What video cards can this computer run?

The best cheapest card is also good.

Compaq Presario 5000T

863 MHZ

512 Ram

30Gb

Pentium III

Integrated video chip

Interl(r) 82810E Graphics Controller

4MB

I could also use more memory, 30GB is becoming low.

One thing I'm trying to do is to get the system ready to run a game someone wants to play, don't know if it is possible with the age of this system.

Thanks

The best thing you can find for that computer in all honesty, is a second story window.

True, it only had 128 MB ram until today. All we can do right now it upgrade, it may not be possible for this computer to run any newer programs, at least not well.

The best card you can get is a Radeon 9250.

I'm assuming you have an IDE hard drive, you have a good selection for replacing the aging 30GB.

This would be your best bet, Western Digital 160GB IDE for $55.
