I wish to upgrade my video card for my 7-year-old Desktop PC.
The current one is NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600.
The operating system is Windows 7 Service Pack 1.
The Mainboard is ASUSTeK Computer Inc. 'P4SD-LA' with 2GB memory.
Can anyone recommend a suitable card considering the age of the PC. I play some games but I mainly use Photoshop CS3 for correcting/changing pictures.
Thanks once again rdave13 I can now tell the difference between the cards' connections. The PSU is 500 watt - hopefully I won't have to replace it. I have 1 AGP expansion slot (half used shared PME), 3 PCI expansion slots (1 half used, 2 half available all shared PME). 32 bit, Power is 3.3v.
From this I gather I have a choice of cards.
Thank you both for your recommendations. The AGP found by gengiscant is far more than I could justify paying and I agree silly money. I will let you know what I finally end up with. Many thanks for your help and advice.
The 4670 card you recommend seems to take two slots. Also I cannot find anywhere that says it will be OK with Windows 7. Does this mean that AGP cards do not work well with Windows 7. Would I be better off using a PCI slot.
