I want to use Google Earth on my HP Compaq DC7600. It does not appear to have a graphics card. It has a 365 watt power supply. Can someone recommend a graphics card?

Seems to have onboard/integrated graphics to me...but, if you want to install a video card, it must be a PCIe card, since those are the only slots listed for that system.

Yes, it does have integrated graphics, but Google Earth doesn't seem to work with it, and Google earth gives me a message to upgrade my drivers, which I don't think I can do with integrated graphics????

I see, thanks :).

Per http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/gma900/index.htm :

"Optimization of System Resources Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) 3.0 supports up to 128MB of video memory; system memory is allocated where it is needed dynamically."

Per http://support.google.com/earth/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=20701 :

"Recommended (System Requirements): Graphics Card: DirectX9 and 3D capable with 256MB of VRAM"

Any of the following will be more than adequate...and cheaper than cards with less RAM:

Ok, thanks. Now, it only has a 365 watt power supply. Is this adequate for these graphics cards? I can't seem to find the information.

I believe that...if pertinent...the specs for a given card will indicate any PSU requirements.

Have you looked at the individual specs for any graphics card you may be considering?

The specs for any computer component...are usually posted as part of the information which the vendor displays...for said item which is for sale. Usually, there is a tab which clearly says "Specs" or "Detail".

In theory, these low end graphics card should work with a 365W power supply.
