I just bought a ASUS desktop computer with Windows 7.  The motherboard is a AMD A8-5500.  I would like to upgrade the video card for light gaming (first person shooters shooters).  I currently have the standard VGA graphics adapter AMD ATOMBIOS 8bit.  Can someone please help me choose a compatible graphics card?

Well we need more information from you to help find the one that you want and is compatible. A few questions would be, how much are you wanting to spend? What is your definition of light gaming, what games in particular? :)

Playing an hour or two on the weekends.  WW II Shooters, Assassin's Creed, etc.  I'd like to stay under $200 if possible.
