Im currently running on a compaq presario 6000 "intergrated"
anyways, the thing is that i want to upgrade my video card.
Because my pc is "intergrated/intergraded" does that mean i have to buy a new v.card, motherboard and sound card?

Wondering if you guys could point out some good v.cards, motherboards and sound cards. im looking medium priced.
a friend of mine bought a 60-80$ motherboard, and that comes with sound card too, so around that price..
and video card im willing to spend around 1-3 hundred.
thanks, ben
if my pc. specs are needed, post here

you need to say what type of processor you have before we can tell you a mobo to buy.

All mobos come with Integrated sound so that wont be needed.

I would suggest a Nvidia Geforce 6600Gt AGP for your video card.

..and should the pc restarting be a normal thing with old graphics card and motherboards?
because when i try to run certain games eg. nfsu2 the pc restarts or when i tried to test "direct draw" in directX diagnostic tool.
ta, ben
