Hi

In order to answer you we need to know what you have for a MB. Do you have a brand system like a Dell or HP or did someone build it?

OK. You do have what looks like an 8x AGP slot. There are a couple of other things to consider. A new video card will definitely be an improvement over your onboard video, but it looks like your system is about 3 years old(??) So you will be able to run more games and run them with more bells and whistles although the latest games might be unplayable. Another consideration is your power supply. Take a look at it. Can you see how many Watts it has?
