    I have onboard graphics and am going to buy a card but the choices are too many.
    Would appreciate it if someone could narrow it down for me so I only have a couple of choices.
    About the only games I play are Fishdom and Adventures of the Caribbean. I enjoy watching full screen videos of TV shows I’ve missed and Skyping with friends.
    Any suggestions on replacing my square monitor with a 19-inch or larger horizontal one?

    Plan on buying these tomorrow
    Creative Labs SB0880 PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium
    4GB kit (2GBx2), 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400
    Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z506 (980-000430)

    My PSU I have no idea what it is but am looking at this one MODU87+ 700W CrossFireX™ (ErP Lot 6)
    EMG700AWT-01

    This computer was built for a neighbor by a shop so I’m running XP Home with no disc’s which is a concern.

    Budget would be helpful. As you don't seem to be doing any hardcore gaming, the current budget work horse GPU is the ATI 5770.

    As for a monitor, Samsung or Asus. I'm currently using several Asus models and I've got no complaints. Again, size would be determined by budget. A 24" model with 1920x1080 resolution can be had for around $200 (I'm using this model: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236049), but there are similar models on special ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236121 ).
