Hello:
I am prestently running an Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 on my Dell PC.
I have an Inspiron 530 Intel Core2 Duo processor E7500 with 3MB L2 Cache, 2.93GHz, and 1066FSB.  I also have 3GB DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz
 
I would like to upgrade to a graphics card compatible with my system that has an HDMI port if possible to make it easier to hook up to my TV.  I don't run games.  I just stream sports from sites like ESPN3.
 
I would appreciate any advise on suitable options.
 
Thank you.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

This card seems to be 64 bit.  My system is only 32 bit.  Will this card 

still work with my computer?

Hi

 

If your system do have a PCI express slot, that card will work fine. 64 bit in the specification is related to the video memory bandwidth used by the card. Higher spec cards will use 128 , 256 or even 512 bit video memory bandwidth.
