I have an AsRock motherboard, N61P-S which has on board graphics in the 6150e nForce 430. The case is a Mini Atx and I have an empty PCIE slot. I am not up on video cards that much, I don't do gaming, mostly videos and movies. Here are my questions.
The current video card says "Core 425mhz/memory 800mhz/Size 256mb.
If I were to install a PCIE half-height video card, could I expect better performance? Is that what video cards do? Any suggestions for what cards may be a good choice?
I wrote out the specs of the machine here:
2GB DDR Ram (in the process of getting 2GB more)
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5600+ Brisbane Dual Core
Power supply is 275watt, so that may cause limitations in a video card choice?
Hope someone can give me an idea if this is worth doing, or should I be looking at upgrading the CPU instead? Do all the AMD chips have graphics chips in them?
Thanks for your reply, I appreciate the input!
