...in the way of power. PCI-E cards are a different animal - but that won't bother you. Get a nVidia or ATI card, making sure of the connection type [must be AGP]. These cards have their own dedicated memory and don't encroach on your system RAM. Although, having said that, you really do need more than 256 MB of RAM these days. Go to the Crucial site and run the scan for advice.
