If you run the sisoft sandra 7 program then click on hardware tab>>"displays and display adapters and video..." icon. Should show all about your graphics card.

It looks like I have a ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series. Is it possible to exchange this for something with a bit more oommph?

Basically I want to use a USB FREEVIEW TV adaptor and want a decent picture.

I am using an external TV aerial, signal qulity is not an issue.

Thanks in advance.

x200 is integrated on the motherboard you will need to have a slot on the motherboard to install a proper graphics card. If you are using a laptop this is not an option and you are stuck with what you have got.
