Go here for Everest Home

http://www.lavalys.c...p?pid=1&lang=en

Click + next to computer then summary, save this as a text file, remove your details at the top, leave everything from the Motherboard down and post this

Include what you want to do, games, images etc so someone can advise you on the options.

Click the lavalys link, then you can get a programme which will tell you things about your PC which will decide what you can install

Hey cloaked05, well see installing a video card depends on your motherboard and computer specs. That post by Keith, allows helpers to find this information.
