In order to run the newer video cards you will most likely end up purchasing a new
Motherboard
cpu
memory
video card
Effectively you will have a new system at that point.

Counter-Strike only needs 256mb RAM to run, i would opt for 512mb minimum.

In terms of your graphics card, I can only guess you have PCI on your board (no AGP, no PCI-E) and so graphics card wise you may be extremly limited. I would look at the ATI Radeon HD2400XT or nVidia GeForce 6200, the former if you can find it in PCI (NOT PCI-E) will have you set nicely.

6200 - http://www.amazon.co...i...9671&sr=8-2

$80 / £40

The ebay item you have found is for PCI E, you want just PCI.

Hope that helps.

From post #4 on dssole23's system memory total.

System Memory 240 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)


As I said in order to get your system to run correctly you would need to increase your memory to 1 gig and buy a newer video card. Since you only have a pci slot for video then the cards you would have a choice of are older and not as fast.

That card is fine to run counter-strike 1.6 on, you'll probably only get a maxmimum of 60fps from it but 60 fps is still pretty playable.

The link you provided has no item available.
Video cards are pretty easy to install. When you open the system up you will see some white slots. This is where you would install the video card and make sure it is lined up with the rear slot in the back of your system. Most likely you will have a small screw to remove the back plate and then reuse it to secure the video card in place.

Is this one good




I am selling my personal video card EVGA manufactory (technologies) Nvidia e-GeForce 6200 PCI 256 Mb DDR2 memory. Item is slightly used like new. there are DVI, VGA, and S-Video output. Item is in original box and original installation CD included . Thats low profile, fanless graphic card, so there no extra noise, work complitely quiet.
 
Materials from wikipedia.org:
GeForce 6200 PCI (NV44) without TurboCache
BFG Technologies introduced a unique PCI version of the GeForce 6200 in both its main and 3D Fuzion lines. Later, PNY (GeForce 6200 256MB PCI), SPARKLE Computer (a GeForce 6200 128MB PCI card and a GeForce 6200 256MB PCI card), and most recently EVGA (e-GeForce 6200 256MB PCI) released their PCI versions of the Geforce 6200 with higher memory clock and memory bandwidth.
Until the release of the ATI X1300 PCI, these were the only two DirectX 9 PCI cards not based on the previous generation GeForce FX family or the discontinued Volari V3XT chip from XGI Technology.
Currently, with the exception of SPARKLE's GeForce 8400 series and 8500 series cards, the above mentioned 256MB Geforce 6200 PCI [4] is one of the most powerful cards for the PCI interface, making it popular among gamers without a PCI Express or AGP motherboard.
Core Clock: 350 MHz
Memory Clock: 400 MHz (BFG Technologies 6200 oc 410 MHz, PNY and EVGA 533 mHz)
Pixel Pipelines: 4
Memory: 256 (BFG Technologies 6200 OC PCI and EVGA e-Ge-Force 6200 PCI) / 128 (BFG Technologies 3DFuzion GeForce 6200 PCI) MB DDR on a 64-bit interface
