I've been looking into updating my graphics card and I'm not quite sure what is compatible with my system. I want a mid-range card, not more than $200 that will give good performance. Is there anyone that could help me out with this? I would really appreciate it. I've posted my computer specs below.

Thanks,
Trinity

Thanks for your help. :tazz: I ended up going with the GeForce 6800. It was a little more than I had wanted to spend, but it seems to be worth it.
