Default Gaphics Card help

Hey everyone,

I've been having lots of problems with my Nividia 6600gt graphics card has I think everyone has. So I’m very keen on upgrading cards especially with all these new high demanding games coming out. Though I’m not sure about what cards are compatible with my pc. I'm hoping to run high demanding games for the future but nothing too expensive.

If someone could please suggest a good graphics card for my system or help me in giving me an understanding of my compatibles

Thankyou

Patchy

Well,To see what kind of power supply you have,you have to take the side panel off of your computer,and there will be a label on it,it will be the Big Box at the top rear of the case.

How old is your computer patchy?

He has a Pentium D, so he most likely has a PCI-E slot.
Just to be sure, could you run CPU-Z?
