Hi mate,

There are a number of different types of graphics cards, so I'll need to know more about your computer to recommend the correct type. Please advise make/model of the computer, or list the parts if it's a custom build.

Cheers

According to the website below, you only have 3 PCI slots in that motherboard, so you will need to find a PCI video card. They are very old technology now but they do still exist. Just grab the cheapest you can find.

Also make sure that one of them is free!

Id just upgrade the motherboard to PCI Express then get a 5770 or GTS 250 or get a new computer if you have the spare cash.
