At the moment I only have the internal video card that came default. I have given my system specs below, as well as, the video card I am looking at. I have a few questions. First, will this card work with my system? Second, is there a card that you recommend? Thank you, and any help will be appreciated. :whistling:

No, you cannot use that card in your computer. Your computer is a SONY, correct? You will have to check to see if you even have a AGP slot as sony decided, when they ordered this motherboard, to leave off the slot because the board was cheaper to build( by $1.25 per board). If you do not have the AGP slot you are stuck using the standard PCI slot video cards.

Look thru these as this is probably the only choices you have.

Ok, thank you very much. I have one final question. I am upgrading mainly for game purposes. What would be a good video card for playing games. Mainly Quake 4.

Either one of these cards will play the game.

You must have a card that is direct X 9 compatable.
