Just purchased a new Dell 22 inch monitor and need to upgrade the video/graphics capability to support 1680x1050. I dont do any gaming, but do work with a lot of digital photos in Photoshop and the like. Unfortunately, it seems I have one of the worst cards out there (VIA/S3G Unichrome IGP) in an HP Pavilion a620n Desktop. Any suggestions on upgrading the graphics and video to meet my needs? Thanks!

Hi and welcome to G2G!!

One question, how much is your budget? Also your computer only supports AGP X8 so the video card you get will be old generation, and cheaper. If you want though you can upgrade and get better performance.

Thanks Soorena! I'd like to keep the budget under $150-$200 dollars since at some point it would likely begin to make more sense to just upgrade the entire machine. Not sure how much I may need a higher level of performance since my main uses are for working with photos, internet and light office work.

Sorry it took so long. Ok if you are interested in a DX10 card then HIS Radeon HD 2600XT is the best one or if you just want a fast card then XFX GeForce 7900GS is the one you wanna go for.
