Windows 7: I need advice for new graphic card to replace my onboard

I need advice for new graphic card to replace my onboard

Been having some problems with my on-board gfx regularly crashing (cheers to Panais for the help BTW).

This is my motherboard ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS M2N68-VM

Im looking for a gpu which is good and cheap. I don't use the PC for gaming, its general home & office use (internet) and I watch the odd video from time to time.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Jacka

Hi

If you are never going to play games then an Nvidia GT520 (40 ish) would be okay, if you think that you might want to play low end games, then a GTS 450 is a mid range card (90 ish). (Spot the NVidia fan )

Have a look at these links:

MSI GeForce GT 520 1024MB GDDR3 PCIe

Novatech GeForce GTS 450 1024MB GDDR5 PCIe

I think the cheaper option would do me just fine. I have the PS3 for gaming. (Do you know if there is a GFX card with a built in digital tuner)

If I get one and install it into my PC will it override the onboard GFX or will I have to disable it.

I'm not aware of a combined card and you'll need to disable the onboard card within the BIOS and remove the driver completly before installing the new driver.
