Hi CF, I'm wondering how i can upgrade my PC. It isn't the best but it gets the job done. I'm not looking to buy a new one so please skip that option. I would like to do some light gaming, basic internet browsing, etc.

3.4 GHz HT P4
250 GB SATA HDD (7200)
2 GB DDR2 RAM
no video card:(


budget: $150

If you can only upgrade that one then getting a video card is about all that can be done. What card you can get depends on what slot you have on your mobo for graphics cards.

A 7 or 8 series PCI-e nVidia card would work fine for what you want. my 7600GT card worked great for medium settings on most games. Not sure what you can get now for what price. Try eBay for a used 7 or 8 series card. I wouldn't buy either new now as the price wouldn't be worth it if they even sell them new anymore.

BTW, what's the wattage of your PSU. You may need to upgrade that depending on the card you get.
