    Hi there.
    I have recently linked up my HDTV to my computer. This is working fine and I have had no problem playing small HD video using VLC player which I heard is the best for such things. My friend wanted to show me his uni project that's pretty big (11gig) and have discovered that my current video card is not up to it. I have done some research and found some that I think are suitable.
    I cannot find a way to ensure that it is compatible with my computer. My main concern is that I cannot find out if my PC has a crossfire motherboard or something? I thought I was good with computers :( but all this is beyond me. I am not bothered about gaming. Just playing HD videos with high bitrates.
    I believe I need a graphics card that fits PCI 1.0 x 16 [1x slot?]. Is that right? :confused: My computer is a dimension e520

    Cheers in advance for any suggestions or help.
