Hey guys,

I am thinking about upgrading my pci video card on my old pc. It has windows xp and it is a p4 3.0ghz with 3gb of RAM. Currently it is a nvidia geforce 5200x, but I want to upgrade to this one:

The reason is because my new 1080p monitor has a dvi input and i want to maximize the monitors capabilities. Will this graphic card work fine with my PC?

You should be fine, the two cards use similar amounts of power and both use PCI.

Thanks for the reply.
Also, if I use a DVI > HDMI cable to hook up this video card to my 1080p monitor, should it produce significantly noticeable HD picture opposed to using a standard vga connection? Tigerdirect shows it doesnt have 1080p support but will it be close?
