It is sort of hard to determine what is compatible with your system when you have not told us anything about it. :thumbsup: There are an infinite number of ways hardware can be put together, so it would be much more helpful if yo gave us your system specs, other than merely giving us a model. Do you need help figuring out what sort of hardware is in your system?

assuming this is your PC?

kind of an off brand german PC sold at supermarkets?

you would need to be able to tell if it's agp or pci-e to replace the video card

for 200Pounds I would get a much better video card and a bigger power supply

for a little over 100 pounds you could get a better card that might work with your present power supply

would need the brand of present power supply and other details to say for sure????????
