    I have windows XP SP3 Home with Intel Blue Mountain 2 D845PEBT2 with 512MB RAM and 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processsor . I have S3 Savage2000 video card (that has only monitor port). This card seems weak and it can not play graphical PC game such as "Rise of Nations".

    I want to buy cheap and good graphics card that work with my motherboard but I don't how to choose.

    I want to buy one from www.ebay.com ( I have no alternative to PayPal). One that has shipping to UAE
    (Dubai).

    I don't know the prices of Graphics card but the maximum that I can pay is $25 including shipping(For me it dosn't worth it to sepend more just to play Games.

    3D games have requirements.

    S3 Savage was never considered viable for playing games.

    The 845/P4 isa very very old system... but it should be rather cheap to locate an OLD video card. Shipping to another country is usually $15~100 depending on distance, duties and rates.

    A recommended cheap card that should work on such a system and cost $0~15. Geforce3, Geforce4 Ti, Geforce 5700 or 5900, ATI 9600 or 9800. All of these are about as old as your computer. But are more than enough to handle that game.

    Try to do searching in your local area to find such cards.
