I'm sure you get this all the time, but I want to upgrade my video card. Unfortunately, I'm not entirely certain what the best card is that my system can support with its current motherboard, processor, power supply, etc.
The reason for the upgrade is so I can play some of the newer game releases. Here are the current specs for the machine. It's an HP Pavilion a350n out of the box, if that helps. Not the best gaming system in the world, but it's what I've got.
Base processor and speed
Pentium 4 / 2.80 GHz
* 800 MHz front side bus
* HyperThreading Technology
* Motherboard Specs
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX (AGP video card)
* 8x AGP card
* Up to 64 MB DDR video
Here's a link to the actual a350n product specs from the HP website if that helps - HP a350n
I'm already planning to upgrade the memory to 2GB. That's the max recommended by HP even though the motherboard can support 4GB.
Thanks for helping me out. I appreciate any and all comments and questions. Figured upgrading the memory and vid card is cheaper than buying a pure gaming machine, especially with reduced play time these days.
