What would be a good card to get for a Compaq Presario SR1903WM, I have a kid who received a free computer from his Aunt, and he wants to put some money into it lol. He likes to play games, cant afford a new gaming computer, so wants to add a video card to this, what would you suggest? The desktop is stock specs right now http://h20000.www2.h...ectID=c00702190 . We are going to max out his ram at 4gb. Add a bigger hard drive, and what would you suggest a machine like this could run for a video card. thanks Spend around $150 on video card. thank you $100 would be ideal

The motherboard will support any PCIe x 16 graphics card so you are limited only by your budget. I recommend you check out Toms Hardware Best Graphics Cards for the Money: February 2012.

HOWEVER - understand that graphics cards are often the most power hungry devices in a computer. Therefore, BEFORE you buy a new graphics card, make sure your power supply is large enough to support it. Note it is very common for these factory made computers to have PSUs that are barely adequate to support the existing hardware. Consequently, it is very common to need a larger PSU to support a new graphics card - compounded by more RAM and drives.
