    Joe H, no newer graphics card will be able to run on that computer it's too old, except for the PCI ones, but those cards are bad and can barely run any editing program or games. Save for a new computer my friend!

    It's not worth the money putting a video card into even an old one you could get on ebay. Save up and get yourself a copy or two of Computer Power User magazine (CPU) and study up. Build a dream machine you never will have to replace. Just keep upgrading it that's all. If you don't want to build you can buy a reasonable machine for $500 - $800 anything less is not worth it unless you build it yourself. I'm talking just the computer with the above mentioned price, not the computer, monitor, printer, fax, photo and scanner deals at Walmart.
