I would like to up grade my video card. What do you recommend? My computer is about one years old. Compaq SR5210NX with windows vista. I up graded it to 2GB of ram. The graphic card is an intel graphics media accelator 950. hard drive 120 GB. Would like to play games also. Needs to be shader supported.

How much are you willing to spend?
You also need to invest on a good PSU.

Your options range from the ATI HD4XXX series to the Nvidia 9XXX series.

You have one PCI-E x16 slot, depending on the card you will also need to upgrade your PSU. I would suggest an Nvidia 9XXX series it will likely be bottle necked a little by your processor but it will also perform well if you decide to upgrade the other components at a later date.
