Re: compatibility question
Lol, I was scared about opening my case without a wrist strap too. Turns out its not necessary, as long as you ground yourself by touching a metal part to discharge any static electricity you may have accumulated. As long as you touch the back of your pc, every once in a while you should be set. The card is pci based, so just make sure your computer has a free pci slot. This card doesn't need any extra power. It gets its power from the motherboard once you plug it into the pci slot. It should improve your graphics by a lot considering your computer has an old Intel chipset. Good luck installing!
