My wife was given her old work PC. It’s a few years old (running Windows XP Professional & has a Pentium 4 CPUY) but I only really wanted to use it for surfing the net, watching You Tube videos etc. I bought a nice HD 16:9 LED monitor last weekend at Best Buy and while it does have an HDMI input – the computer does not have an HDMI output. Also, I noticed that HD You Tube videos are choppy and have sort of a lag to them when they are in full screen 16:9 mode.
So, I want to add a new video/graphics card that has an HDMI input and to hopefully help with the video lag.
I was looking on N egg .com and there are just way too many selections for video cards. My head is spinning…
My IT guy at work says I have to be aware of the “power rating” of the computer (I guess some video cards need more power) and whether the computer has PCI or
PCI E inputs??
Anyway, I’ve attached a link for the specs on the computer I have. Would someone be able to pick out one that would work for me and send me a link? I didn’t want to go crazy on price since this is a free computer and I’m not a “gamer”.
Let me know if you need any other specs or anything off the actual computer at my house.
Thanks Very Much for the Help!!
