Default Need To UPGRADE Video Card, Dont know where to start!

K guys the rig is a couple years old.

ASUS P5N-D MOBO
Inter Core 2 Quad CPU 2.6
4 gb of ram not sure if its ddr2/ddr3
2 x 250 wd harddrives

...I need to put in a new Graphics card to run some games but not sure whats compatible I was thinking this one,
XFX Double D Geforce GT 630 GT630NCDF2 Video Card - 2GB, DDR3, PCI-Express 2.0 (x16), 1x Dual-link DVI-I, 1x VGA, 1x HDMI, DirectX 11, Low Profile, Dual-Slot

Not sure if its compatible read some reviews people say its good doesnt run loud or hot and plays most current games on med to high specs

you can forget running games at med/high settings as you say you have heard people stating.
but low/med doesn't seem too unlikely. i think it would be a fine last upgrade on that machine.
anything more is not worth putting in that system. like putting in a high profile GPU or replacing the CPU.

if your case does support dual slot graphic cards, then it should work.

If your wanting to run games on medium/high settings then you'll need some major upgrades.

I posted in your other CSS thread, so if you're referring to CSS at med/high settings this won't have any issues as I posted there.
