Hi All
I've got PC with an Asrock GE Pro-M motherboard and a P4 with 2GB Ram click here PRO-M
Would there be any benefit from fitting a graphics card?
if there would be, could you suggest a suitable card Please?

Why, what do you want to do with the PC?
If it's just general surfing and stuff then no but if you want to play games then yes. I'm sitting here with virtually the same system as you on a 42" plasma and everything is ok. If you want to play games then you need to upgrade but if not i's all cool.
Saying that if you do want the latest games you would need to upgrade the whole lot... more info as to your PC preferences is needed ;-)

Hi intense,
Thanks for the reply. It's a home PC, used for general surfing, picture editing and the usual programs, not that interested in games.

Are you saying that apart from vista and windows 7, or running games, there is no gain from a dedicated graphisc card?
