The system is a stardard HP Pavillion 513n Desktop PC
CPU is an Intel Celeron 1.8 GHz Model 1 Stepping 3
it was free & my son uses it for school plus...that is what the problem is
he bought Sim City4 & now I am upgrading it
I am boosting the RAM to 2 G from 512 (free pc's dont come with much)

I cant tell what type of video card is compatible

Your board has no AGP slot therefore it is not possible to add a better graphics card. Realistically this computer is five years old, SimCity 4 makes the most of more recent hardware that unfortunately that computer can never use.
