What would be a good video card choice to build a starter gaming computer?

Im using a Dell Amd athlon(tm) 64 Dual Core Processor 3600+ 1.90 Ghz and it holds 297GBs im trying to turn this into a gaming computer. its pretty decent so far but i know the video card is what makes the game so good i run games just fine. im tired having to keep my resolutions low just to play them though. Everyone tells me to build a gaming computer instead of buy one. My computer im practicing on is a hp compaq dc7900 small form factor with intel core 2 duo processor Intel GMA 4500 DirectX 10 graphics so my games look and play better slightly better but still in low resolution but i only get 72 GBs and the games are harder to download and set up so what are some good decent priced video cards for these computers

Hi Genisha,

While choosing a video card, you need to keep three things in mind:

1. Connector availability on the motherboard to install the video card. The latest and prevalent video card connector is PCI Express x16.
2. Chassis form factor. This will decide if you would need a Full-Height card or a Low Profile card.
3. Power Supply. Ensure that the power supply meets the minimum requirements of the video card.

Keeping these three things in mind, you may choose a video card for your systems. Post the Dell system model to know which card have been tested with that.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
GauravS
