problem upgrading graphics card
my system configuration is :
Motherboard :GA -8I865GME- 775
CPU :intel p4 HT 3.06GHz
graphics:On board intel 82865G graphics adapter
i have an AGP 4x/8x(1.5v) slot
i am currently running win 7 but not its aero features and transperency due to unsuppored motherboard
now i want to install a new graphics card in my AGP slot and my question is :
1. which graphics card should i install so that i can run win 7 aero features.
2. i have a Samsung CRT 17" monitor ,will it conflict with the graphic card to run win 7 aero features.
3.Should the "DDR" of the graphic card taken in consideration.
"please keep in mind that i cannot buy a new computer"
thank you in advance

Sunjyot, welcome to the Seven Forums.
To answer your questions,
1. None, see below.
The reason for saying none is that sadly any AGP card you buy will be worth more than your computer. It is your money but buying something that is obsolete (AGP has gone the way of the dodo) just for Aero doesn't make sense.
Also the motherboard has a totally unsupported chipset on it (Intel 865, of which Intel stopped supporting a long time ago) which can make getting an AGP card to install properly (if at all) a challenge.
You may not be able to afford a new computer now, but it would be wiser to save up until you can instead of essentially throwing the money away.
