More and more I am finding that games are not able to run properley. I think this may be due to my graphics card not being up to it anymore. I do not play the top action games, but the kind of Match three and hidden object games from playrix and big fish.
I'd like an opinion on which card to buy. I would hope it has more memory and dual screen mode, for wheen I am photo editing with CS5. Both my screens are usually set at 1920x1200.
I appreciate my system is old, but I am not looking to change it in the immediate future.
I also hope that the new card shoud be a "straight swap" that I can do myself.
At the moment my budget is governed by whether the new card represents good value, and not cause conflicts to the rest of my computer.
Any advice gratefully received.

My Advise I wouldn't bother upgrading, your motherboard has the AGP Slot most cards now are un abtainable wouldn't really notice much of a difference. As it could bottle neck your CPU and DDR Memory.

Save up and buy or build a new system with newer parts.
