    My sister has an old HP running Windows ME. It has a 233Mhz Pentium CPU and 96MB of RAM. She needs to get a new video card for her computer (The one she has got bent up during transport to their new house). My question is: Can I get any video card for her computer or will certain one's not work in her computer? I know I need to get a PCI video card, because that is the slot she has available, but is there anything else I need to consider, since this is such an old machine?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Just get a PCI card with at least 64 MB of memory and make sure it is supported under her OS.

    Ah no, you could do that or just buy a cheap used PCI one if she isn't into any gaming beyond solitare
